TMC (The Twenty Minute Challenge from Katharine Cartwright)
I have really gotten interested in sketching and then laying down some watercolor on top of the sketch.
Limiting myself to 20 minutes has really been key to my realization of what the necessary lines are and a huge editing lesson. Not to mention, I can allow myself to “play” for 20 minutes. It is a lesson in organization also. With a 20 min limit, having everything ready is key. I like to start with the simplest of things, like pen and paper, and maybe some basic watercolors, and one brush.
I enjoy looking at efforts of others also, and reading what they have learned, and seeing their choices.
This is a quick pen sketch of some trees in my backyard, then I quickly used some watercolors to add some character! Time to rake leaves!
