Sweet Friendship // Sketchbook Sunday

Hi friends! Today for Sketchbook Sunday I am sharing the painting I did for the watercolor class I am taking. My sketchbook Sunday posts are all about the stuff I do to help grow my skills and perspective as an artist, usually it’s in a sketchbook but sometimes it is a larger painting like this 22″x29″ watercolor:

You can see the time-lapse in the video below. Many of you asked how I did the skin in one layer on a previous painting and this video will show that.

Painting the skin in one layer gives a very fresh and translucent effect, you just need to be brave enough to use more color than you think you need and leave it alone LOL! This is the other painting I mentioned, I shared it on Instagram but forgot to share it here. I painted the skin the same way, one layer and lots of color and then left it alone to dry (and it looks like a hot mess when it is wet just so you know.)

  2. Love the painting Lindsay. Now I don’t want to upset you but have you thought about using synthetic sponges as well, or at least collect your own off the beach, wouldn’t want you to feel bad about contributing to the removal of live sponges from the ocean for art.

    • I have had these same ones for probably 20 years so I haven’t thought about how I would obtain more. I know they are sea animals but I got them before I knew what a sponge was. You haven’t upset me, that is a good point to pick them up from the beach if you need any. I guess commercial operations probably don’t puck them up on a beach although you see them there often all dried out.

  6. You art blows me away and the fact that you are so kind to share how you do it is so awesome! I love that you are taking a class too! It’s something I guess most people wouldn’t think an amazing artist would normally do but it makes a lot of sense! Teachers (which I know you also are), hair stylists, and tons of other “trades” continue education, so obvious! Thank you for being a great inspiration.
