Decided to doodlewash my previous sketch as it was just screaming for a sky! I tried the sky starting with a wet on wet technique, but then came back in after it was dry to add a bit more definition so there was a bit more drama to it.
The foreground was crazy complex with all sorts of houses, trees, stone walls and other things cropping up here and there. Starting with a detailed ink drawing is definitely a different effect. It’s a bit more literal so it’s sometimes harder to decide which colors to use.
Since I’m participating in #DrawingAugust it’s been easier to doodlewash these sketches, but I really want to try some more pencil sketches with watercolor soon. In the end, I’m just so happy doodlewashing that I don’t mind how it happens. It’s truly the most fun I’ve had in well… ever!Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in By Charlie

Charlie, you gotta be happy with this. Honestly most of your stuff should be hanging on a wall. It’s consistently good.
Thank you Kirk! I sincerely appreciate that!! I’m just sort of going for it every day and not really worrying about the outcome. My mom in Texas requested a piece to be brought to her at the next family gathering so I figured I’m doing okay! Hehe
