Well this didn’t quite turn out like what was in my head and I’ll just admit that bricks are super hard! So I abstracted the crap out of them with a dry brush. A little sienna crazy, but I felt done so I stopped here. I learned a ton about what I won’t do next time so this one is a success!

  1. I think you did a good job on this. You sure don’t have to do every brick, it would look too fussy. A suggestion, as you’ve done, or a couple of sketched on here and there will do just fine!


    1. Thanks Rachel! Guess feeling overwhelmed worked out then…hehe. Yeah…less is definitely more. I have to keep reminding myself I’m only 9 days in on this little quest to learn watercolor. I truly appreciate you taking the time to comment. Your work is lovely by the way! 🙂
