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.
I had just signed for an online workshop, “Draw Like It’s Hot” in Sketchbook Skool . It’s about drawing food. I welcomed this challenge to sketch food but also to record through drawings food that I used to prepare for a meal. In the final assignment we are to prepared a sketch of a recipe that would be posted on a food recipe website. Kinda like illustrating for a book.
