Hello Crimson Daggers and welcome to my Sketchbook!

While I've had most of my experience in traditional and a little bit in digital lately I've found I really love working with watercolors. These works, posted chronologically, are my first attempts at the medium.

Nice start dude and for a first attempt at watercolours that's really good.
I'm assuming your main interest is in drawing creatures?
Thanks Triggerpigking, I think my main interest is nature and traditional mediums. I find it much more relaxing than working digital.

Welcome! I'm always happy to see another watercolour artist. I share your love for traditional medium and nature as well.
Looking forward to see more :)
Thanks Eyliana! When I get a moment I'll have to pop in and take a look at your sketchbook :)

Some more paintings:



Almost finished my small watercolour sketchpad. I have a Moleskine watercolour journal on order from the UK along with some W&N Watercolour paints, so I'm really looking forward to getting those! Hopefully next week!

I picked up a cheap A5 sketchpad just for pencil & ink sketches as not to waste my watercolour paper, so I've started filling those out. I think my goal will be to try and finish both by end of the year.

I need to remember not to over-work my watercolours. The first one I killed by treating it more like an acrylic. We learn from our mistakes though!

I ran out of time at the end but I had a lot of fun with this and learnt a lot. I went and got a bunch of bigger paints and a new canvas ready for whatever I end up painting next :)

And I finally got around to finishing this:
