with just one brushload of color

Random experiment that worked! I filled a #8 round brush with watercolor and walked to another room with my journal to draw something. Found a familiar silhouette in the window, so formed what I saw. What worked best was the direction of my strokes to create the form of fur pattern down his back and along his haunches. An intention that often doesn't work out.

During one of my sessions of ogling blank notebooks and journals online, I came across your blog and I love seeing the progression of your sketches. I like how you seem to be using different mediums and playing with colors. This reminds me of when I was younger and enjoyed drawing, except I never sticked to it much... my medium is mostly the written word.
