testing out watercolors by oomizuao testing out watercolors by oomizuao
I bought myself a set of watercolor paint (in tubes), and just sort of played around with them on paper.
The first attempt was just blending colors and doodling around. This is the second attempt I did.
I haven't worked with watercolors in years, and as I remember I used to dislike watercolors... But now, I can honestly say I love them! I'll definitely use them more often :)

The watercolours give Spike a more earthy feel and integrate the structure of the paper to become an integral part of the work. I also like that here he looks serene, at least calm.

Watercolor makes everything look so much more lifelike <3
And you should use them more often. You're really good at it :)
