I got back to watercolor recently. This one is a bit more serious than the previous illustration I posted a few days ago. I think I'm still in the warming up mode. For now I'm not aiming for any big project. I just start with anything inspiring. This illustration/painting is based on a free photo I found on morguefile.com. I'm trying to loosen up and refresh my feeling with the medium. I think watercolor is about building up the intuition to know when to control and when to let go. It's important to keep practicing and pushing the limit.
I bought a new lense (a Nikkors AF-S 35mm 1:1.8) last month. This photo is one of the test shots. I was just grabbing whatever I have on the desk but it turned out really nice. I haven't got used to the lense yet but I'm excited with the new challenge. More cool pics will come for sure.
