I’m excited to say that I’m participating in the 30×30 Direct Watercolor 2018 Challenge. What I’m understanding about doing direct watercolor is to paint with pure watercolor. I cheated. I started out with a gestural pencil sketch and then add watercolor in a free forming fashion. The originator of the challenge is Marc Taro Holmes and his blog post explains more on the process.
My set up is using the early morning light.
