An old client asked for birds, a favorite watercolor subject for me, so I’m doing a few for him to choose from. (Posting on Etsy.) Some may sell before he gets to them but there’s always more where these came from.
Before attempting a difficult subject it’s helpful to first draw some dumb thing you don’t care about. Drawing S L O W L Y, but unconcerned with making a masterpiece, this gets your eye engaged seeing form and relationships. Having done this you move on to the more difficult subject with a win under your belt and your confidence bolstered.
