Five Minute Watercolor Sketch

Five Minute Watercolor Sketch
watercolor on cold press paper

I only have a few more of these little paintings left before the book is full. I was tired of painting on cardstock though, so I did this one on watercolor paper.

I used my day off to play with paints. These are all from found photos, in a scrapbook I found at Goodwill.

I’m using the seascape and landscape photos from the photo album I found at Goodwill as source material for a series of quick paint sketches. (Quick for me, that is. I’m trying to spend no more than 15 minutes on each one.)

This one was done with Faber-Castell Gelatos and Arteza gouache. I’ve not worked with Gelatos before, but I enjoyed using them with gouache. 11/10 would do again.

I gave in and bought some Arteza gouache paints to play with. I had fun with them, so it was money well spent.
