Study in Watercolor

Hello, everyone! I know that its been a long time, but I’m finally back. Today, I wanted to share the updo of how helpful studies really are in the realm of art.

So, a while back, I decided to enroll in a watercolor class in order to improve my skills in watercolor – and boy did it help! I would definitely recommend taking a watercolor class – or a class in any media for that matter – from a skilled, trusted instructor to narrow down skills, for anyone wanting to grow in their art skills. And to those who may be thinking that “studies in realism won’t help my style of art”, the fact of the matter is that anytime you make art, it’s always somehow inspired by real life. Essentially, narrowing down skills in realism, as I also learned in watercolor, can be applied to almost anything in art – so it really is important. That being said, I learned from watercolor that realism isn’t always essential. Sometimes when I paint in watercolor, I choose to paint in a looser manner – meaning more abstract lines, less shading, and simple shapes. All in all, I highly recommend taking a class in a specific media of art to hone in your skills, if you wish to grow.

To talk about some of my watercolors above, they start as simple studies of objects, focusing on light and color. I was actually pretty pleased by how some of them turned out, but, as there should be, there are many beginner’s flaws. By the end, I traveled onto more complex subjects, such as people, complicated objects, or landscapes. I hope you all enjoy the pieces!

I really hope that anyone wishing to rejuvenate or grow their skills consider engaging in a serious study of a specific media. As I’ve said, it really helps!

Thanks, and don’t forget to comment!
