Watercolor Illustration

Watercolor illustration titled “Home for Dinner”. Done for a design composition project on narrative illustration. I sketched this initially on paper. I then took a picture of that and cleaned up the lines digitally then printed out a clean version of my sketch. I took that printed sketch and used a light box to trace it onto watercolor paper. I’ve been using this method a lot for my watercolors. When I’m not sketching directly on the watercolor paper I am able to avoid eraser marks and paper damage that would prevent the paint from going on smoothly. After tracing my clean sketch I used watercolors and gouache to complete the painting.
