Water colors

I just finished a water color drawing for my dad's birthday next week. He's always been a keen hunter in his spare time hence the subject.

I thought this time I'd show you guys how I make my water colour pictures step by step so here goes:

First step: the sketch

I think my mask of sanity is about to slip.

I know it's harder than it looks. I can't paint worth a squat, so I stick with colored pencils.

Nancy, lovely sensitive stuff. Great drawing, beautiful animals. Why in heaven's name does your dad want to go out and destroy such beauty? Just curious.

you should ask my father that question. I suppose it's his instinct and the thrill/excitement of the hunt itself.

I have always appreciated art from the heart and soul, and the hard work that goes into the artwork.

I am amazed Nancy

You forgot to paint the cross-hairs...or does your dad use iron sites?

Nice work. I've never been able to manage watercolors myself.

Those paintings are excellent, Nancy

I haven't played with water colors since I was a little kid. My paintings looked nothing like that, thought

That's pretty.

Any reason for the lack of contour lines and definition around the babies head?

I'm impressed that you noticed that. I realised that I had forgotten to define those lines some time ago so I've already fixed it
