Watercolor sketching

Spent yesterday getting back into the swing of things with watercolors by trying new techniques from Jane Haine's Atmospheric Watercolors book. Although neither of these sketches strictly employed the technique from the book, I had fun anyway! The giraffe is actually painted from a David Webb watercolor book (from a painting and photo reference).

Hidden Villa

Did some plein air sketches at Hidden Villa in Los Altos. Pretty area! Really wish I had brought my paints, as the colors on the vegetables and houses were fantastic! As it is, I just did some pen sketches and then colored the one below in PS afterwards. Blue kale! So yummy!
