Improving

A doctor has to always be studying, updating his technique, his knowledge. He's gotta be at the top of is game. On that same basis, an artist has to look to other techniques that might enrich hi work somehow.

I'm taking watercolor classes. Not that I see myself making painted albums like the Europeans do (those crazy bastards), nor even do I want to change my "I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE" style. I just always loved watercolors and I think it's the technique I'd like to use if I were to do something hand painted.

After lots of exercises and getting to know the colors a little bit, I decided to dare making a real drawing.



I didn't really like the results, but it showed me all the things I still get to improve and that it's not as simple as it looks. But I'm not in a hurry. One thing I learned already, watercolor is for those who can wait till it's time to do it right.
