Drawing A Day Week 4 Day 1

Watercolor. Can you sketch with it? Draw with it? Absolutely. You can use it to block in color quickly, finish some details with graphite. You can go all the way, and work the color in well and create intense detail. Here's a tutorial about a leaf in watercolor by Rob Webb that might just light you up!

And, if you click here, Mindy Lighthipe's Tutorial, you'll find a nice article about materials and methods that she uses for her bold botanical style.

Feeling confident? Now, make your own specimen tomorrow, and maybe even another the day after that. You can do it!
