This is one of the styles in which I would love to learn how to paint; minimalist lines/washes. To me, this is different than simply “loose,” if that makes sense. How did you go about painting this piece?
I really don’t know how to describe it. I did a rough sketch and focused on the shadows of the reference images which luckily the Silverback gorilla was perfect. I used one color and made several tones of the color. Then focusing on the tone of the shadows helped me determine where the lightest and darkest shades should be. Does that help? I’m new to watercolor and was experimenting.
