19 - 1/13/13 - Allomyrina dichotoma- “Kabutomushi” - Watercolor & Ink
My first attempt at seriously doing watercolor in this particular sketchbook…It’s been rather frustrating because I typically use 300lb hot press paper when I do my watercolor pieces. This didn’t turn out too terribly but the paper did pull up and get pulpy because of the water, though this is a watercolor sketchbook. Frustrating, but I’m just going to have to change my technique a bit. I might transfer some of these onto my usual paper because I am more comfortable with it, and it’s smooth so doesn’t pull up with my strokes. But I rather like the pencil & watercolor style, and I think tracing it would just not be the same, so for now, here’s this attempt. I may even try this piece again transferred, but I need a break.
Sorry for the text block.

Guess who got a new scanner?
Now with this I´ll try to post all my anatomy studies (once I learn how it works), for now, here is part of my hand studies.
