Watercolor Sketch

Girl with a Lamb
4X5, Pencil & Watercolor
  Im going to start using a heavier weight paper for these small sketches, regular paper wrinkles up to much. My problem is, I dont like textured watercolor paper, and almost all heavy weight watercolor paper is textured. I may try bristol board because it heavy, and smooth.

King Tutankhamun

Sketch of King Tut 
Sketched on toned 8.5X11 paper
Pentel 5.0 mechanical pencil, & 01 Micron pen with brown ink
I tone my paper with watercolor. I fill a spray bottle up with a mixture of water and watercolor. I normally mix Raw Sienna, and Ivory Black. Sometimes I'll use Raw Umber. Its mostly water with just a little bit of pigment. I use regular computer paper, and its does wrinkle a bit. I also spray the sketch after Im done drawing, and it colors the pencil just a little bit. Its fun to experiment with.

A Quick Study

Here is a color study for a painting Ive been planning for some time now. Before I ever start on the actual painting Ill draw and paint, lots and lots of studies. Ill draw individual studies for each figure, heads, hands, and clothing.

The Pieta Color Study,
Oil on Linen, 8X10
Below is my initial concept drawing. The finished painting will likely change a great deal.

My Watercolor Palette

Hey Guys, here are the colors I have in my watercolor palette. I also use these exact same colors for oil painting. 
There are 15 colors total. If you only wanted to use 12 full pans, I would remove Raw Umber, Cobalt Blue, and Ultramarine Violet. I really don't need the Sap Green, but I like to mix it with Cadmium Red for some really nice earthy reds. For you Munsell enthusiast, a low chroma yellow red. If your not familiar with Munsell terminology, it basically means a greyed yellow red, at a particular value. Could be a light greyed yellow red, or a dark greyed yellow red.

Heres a quick pencil sketch and watercolor portrait of my brothers dog KoKo. She's a Pittbull, and always wants someone to pet her. I sketched her back in 2012.
