Medium Exercises

Hi everyone, Here's a quick look at some quick medium studies I've been doing. One of the major suggestions I received while in New York was to figure out a way to incorporate my sketchbook style with my final illustrations, so this is one of my first steps toward that. I'm trying to do at least one portrait a weekend, preferable in different mediums.
I'm really enjoying the return to working in watercolor, I haven't really created a major watercolor piece since high school. It's nice change from oils and I'm having fun playing with different papers and how they effect the paint.
More to come soon, I have an illustration project in the works so keep you eyes out for some thumbnails and value studies.

  1. Erika, I have found you and your blog! I 100% adore your Twain sketch; watercolor suits your rendering & color skills. I can't wait to see what other work you have. I'm so excited for your adventures!
