It was my Dad’s Birthday recently and he asked me for a watercolor sketch. All the watercolor sketches you see on my website are ‘field sketches’, which means they are created in Africa, on site, without reference to photos or video. But what I was painting for my Dad was being done in the studio, so I decided to make his watercolor the basis for my next studio acrylic painting.
First I created a small pencil drawing (above).
Then I painted the 14×11″ watercolor (above). In my next post (Friday) I’ll explain how I use this watercolor as the basis for a 20×16″acrylic painting.
Happy Birthday Dad!
Until next time…
