After working a couple of pages of blind and seeing continuous line exercises, I decided to try an actual watercolor sketch using the continuous line concept. I did so after going back to Brenda Swenson's site and re-reading all posts related to the continuous line approach. I've always liked how hers look.
From her posts I also decided to try using a Tombow marker pen to work the ink sketch to allow it to bleed into the watercolor wash as I painted. Here are my results.
The one thing I need to work on is not feeling the need to go back filling in gaps that would be created by not going back over previous lines. It's a natural tendency on my part to "complete" the line sketch.
The other area I need to work on is making sure as I move from one end to the other, not to leave out any areas that would cause me to have to re-trace my steps over previously laid ink lines.
Now this sketch I really enjoyed.
