More Watercolor of the Lake

I really enjoy painting water with watercolor, as funny as that sounds. It's so flowing and organic and just feels good to paint. I'm generally stuck with painting whatever it is that's in my backyard, and it's getting a little hard to find subjects. So, I painted this pole that was sticking up by the bulkhead in my backyard. I'm fairly pleased with the way this turned out, though I do need to practice the broader expanses of ripples and water near the top.

Summer Doodles

I generally use the summer vacation to practice my drawing and art skills. Now that I've taken a few different painting classes and found a nice set of Prismacolor markers laying around my house, I have a few new mediums to explore! So here are my explorations thus far.

Thesis Rough Color Script

These are the main colors for my thesis as of now. They will be very likely to change as I really get into my project, but they a nice exercise in simple shapes and illustration.
