Going back to the sea

undersea watercolor and ink

I painted the base for an undersea sketch last month. I finally got around to adding more life to it with some ink sketching. Hope you enjoy seeing my progress.

Sometimes I need to leave a painting on my desk for a while and return to it later when the time is right.

This is a close up view as I started my sketch. I usually work on the ink detail over a few evenings. That way I’m not rushed and can enjoy the process. It also gives me an opportunity to step back and make decisions about where go next.

At this point, it was starting to feel more complete but not quite there yet.

After adding more leaves and other details below, I decided to call it finished. I wish I had used my larger mixed media sketchbook. Hopefully I’ll remember that next time. 😊

I’m getting excited about #Inktober2021 just around the corner. I purchased a new sketchbook and will be participating when I can. Hope you will be joining in too.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. We all need more of that. Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
