After practicing a bit with watercolor this month, I decided to test myself with another Society of Visual Storytellers (SVSlearn.com) monthly contest. The prompt for this August was DRAGONFLY. I tried several ideas and multiple thumbnails before settling on 3 dragonflies escaping a wide-mouth bass.
For inspiration with the watercolor, I looked to Beatrix Potter and her illustrations of Jeremy Fisher. Her color and her mix of linework and brushwork to show water is gorgeous!
I’m getting closer! At the pace I’m going it’s more like an eternal creep than a forward motion, but I’ll take it.
