Portfolio Water Colors

Here is an online portfolio that I have created with the use of water colour paints.

Silhouette Trees: In this illustration two tree were painted with the use of straight wash technique. Being silhouetted the only colour used in the painting was black. Before using the paint, I lightly sketched the image with a pencil and revised it several times until I was satisfied with it.
Photoshop Brushes: In this illustration ink splatters were created on paper using two techniques. One is called a splatter technique (fitting title) and the second was created by "blowing" the paint across the paper.
Lion: In this illustration I painted a lion that I had sketched from a reference photo using a wash technique. A little bit a gradient technique was also used. This one is hands down my favorite.
Background: Here is a background that was created using a wash technique as well as a splatter technique.
Techniques: here is compilation of various techniques that are used when working with watercolors. Splatter is my favorite technique.
Color wheel: In this illustration a color wheel was created with the use of several techniques. First a wash was used to lay the foundations of each color. Then the primary colors were mixed to create the various color sections in the wheel, this part was a bit challenging for me to correctly mix each color. Lastly, after the wash was applied a gradient technique was used in attempts to blend the colors seamlessly.
