I'm a newbie in watercolor so here is a bit of practice. I used photos from the book "The Agile Rabbit Picture Atlas of Flowers" as reference. As you can see the first two are pretty crappy, but the rest is OK I think. Too bad the rose didn't scan properly, it looks very delicate in person.

Today I decided to do what I've been refraining from for... over 4(?) years. I decided to use my fancy Windsor & Newton sketchbook, the one that's been waiting around my room for the time when I can actually draw properly. And since that's going to be never, I better use it now before the moths eat it.
I hate boat drawings because I've seen an abundance of them being sold to tourists at the stands on the beach in my hometown, but I figured I should at least try one for variety's sake.

I went out for a walk and drew some trees with charcoal. I'm trying to overcome my fear of drawing in front of people. Every time someone passed by I twitched and tried to hide my drawing :/
Anyway, white pencil over charcoal gives an awful result (as seen of first picture) so there shouldn't be even a little charcoal on the parts to be highlighted... blah.
They got smudged a bit before I got home to fix them with a hairspray.
