365 Days of Art: Day 89 – Watercolor “Deep in the Ocean”

The challenge: Create some form of visual art, no matter how small, each day for a full year.

About a month ago, I purchased a book called No-Fail Watercolor: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Painting with Confidence on Amazon. It’s by and artist named Mako who I accidentally discovered on YouTube. I like this book. It breaks down the steps and gets into the physics of how water works in ways I can understand. It’s definitely helped improve my watercolor technique.

I’ve decided I’m going to work through this book in sections. After I finish a section, I will switch back to the Dreamscapes book I’ve also been working on. I’m working through the ocean section right now. Tonight, I’m going to attempt the “Deep in the Ocean” project, which is looking up at the oceans surface from below. It looks pretty cool. I hope I can do it half as well.

Mine is the big one on the right.

I probably overdid it with the sunbeams…

Anyway, it’s not to bad for about an hour of work.

Bed calls. Have a great evening everyone!

Daily Yoga: Today I did this Yoga with Tim video. Forty minutes and it was hard (but maybe I’m tired from yesterday, too).
