[CR] Lazy Redd in watercolor

in #artisteem4 years ago (edited)

Artwork ImageHere's a new piece in my series focusing on self-improvement through art.
I've chosen watercolor because paintings have a certain chill, lazy tone to them.
So far so good,
even it have been a good week since I published the last piece, I'm satisfied with myself.
I actually enjoy brushes and the whole process.
I'm an impatient person by nature and I always though, watercolor paints will make me rage quit in 5 minutes.
Well, what is this, 7th picture?
I'm still here, and I still haven't punched a hole in a wall.

I don't know, do you guys see any improvement?

Yes, it is not a rabbit this time.
This time it's a old lazy red panda from my local zoo.
I don't remember the name, so let's call him Lazy Redd.
Lazy Redd, whenever I see him, he always sleep.
He went through a period of depression, you could tell by the state of his fur.
However, compared to the previous time I saw him, he's in much better shape.
The fur grew back as well.
The picture is not a recent one, and it would kill me if I was effectively painting a passed animal.
I should pay a visit some time, red panda enjoy cold climate and since the winter is coming, they should become more lively.

Tools and stuff:

  • Some old brushes I steal from my fiance, kind of good, I think it's real hair.
  • Watercolor paints, all I know is the producer. Winsor&Newton. Don't know if it's popular or not, as a newb I couldn't tell good paints from lousy paints.
  • Paper Canson Multi-technique paper
  • Belgian Waffles with peanut butter
  • Beer
  • Rabbits

Here's the original picture:

Lazy Redd, Red Panda, name unknown, Poznań Nowe ZOO, Poland

Awesome progress wabbit :) I can see the improvement and glad it's working on your patience.

Did you use the waffles on the painting too?

Love red pandas. They are like the cuter version of raccoons.

I hear there are hug-able as well. :D
