Sunday Sketches and Days 25 AND 26 of 29 FACES

Time for Sunday Sketches with Sophia of Blue Chair Diary! And since I have continued to work on my face sketches for Ayala Art's 29 Faces in February, I actually have something to show this week...

First up is another in my Scientist Series:

Marie Curie by EVA 

This next one I sketched just using watercolours but no pencil - but I really messed up the amount of water and damaged the paper where I was trying to add shading.         :(          Oh well - this is all a learning experience!


I'll be dropping by throughout the day to see your sketches. Have a great day!

  7. how fun that you that you painted a piece with no pencil first, i think that is a wonderful experience that can also be done with an ink pen...

    yes, nice paper is a must for paintings. so wonderful to see each of your pieces.

  11. That's really impressive that you didn't use pencil for your painting. I'm hopeless without mine because I make a lot of mistakes. But your portrait came out really nicely. Also, you might want to switch to watercolor paper. It's more expensive than regular paper but at least you won't have to worry about it puckering even when you use a lot of water.

  17. I can't tell you how many pieces of paper I ruined.... and still do... while using watercolour's without a guide drawing, and tone with watercolour is quite a process... great fun learning though and this is pretty awesome... I wouldn't attempt skin tone without a stiff drink at hand... have a great week...xx

  19. Marie Curie! Hooray! a woman scientist... role model. Great sketch! That buckling paper thing... yeah. One reason I eschew water media - though i've heard the really good watercolor paper prevents that sort of thing
