My first watercolor experiments

3년 전


What’s up, Steemit?

Late night here. I am almost sleeping, but can’t wait to show you the fruits of my sudden burst of creativity. This is a watercolored pen drawing (liner drawing actually). This is what I always wanted to try, but never got around to doing it.

Being a lazy bone and a pen fan, I see watercoloring as something tiresome and time consuming. If you paint with watercolor, you need a lot of stuff. First of all, watercolors. And brushes. And water. And some vessel for water. And special thick paper. And a palette (I realized it later). Ok, I borrowed my son’s watercolors and brushes while he was sleeping, poured some water into a cup that (I guess) nobody uses, even found an album (not for watercolor) and took a plate that (again, I guess) nobody uses and finally started to draw.

I sketched this first:


And watercolored it:


And you know what? Watercoloring is fun!

What I really wanted to say is that you should not be afraid to try something new that you never did before. If you don’t like the result, don’t worry, it will be better next time. And even better the third time. So get off your ass and start watercoloring!

Wow this is beautiful, awesome and incredible. I always love it when people try new things and different concept expecially those that look impossible.

Muy bien amigo, siempre he dicho que las acuarelas se mezclan muy bien y dan ese toque sutil. saludos y ya quiero ver mas.


Thanks, mate!

Интересная работа, Антон! Вы решили отойти от рисования шариковой ручкой? Линии теперь совсем другие.


Спасибо! Куда ж я от ручки денусь? :) Просто решил поэкспериментировать с капиллярной ручкой и акварелью

Ohhh this is lovely! The sketch is already amazing, but it really gets better through the colours (perhaps the watercolours want to be used by you :-D)
The complementary colours let it pop and draw the view of the observer to the eyes and lips of the portrait. Beautifully done (I am envious...I find it very tough to paint with watercolour.... they are so unpredictable)
Thank you for sharing


Thanks :D Unpredictable! That’s the word perfectly describing watercolor:)

A skillful watercolor. You use a small number of touch for keep in soft. Great calculation.
