I am trying to get over the intimidation of doing live sketching of people with watercolor. I don’t carry my watercolors with me like I do my sketchbook and have always wanted to. Part of the reason is I feel rushed for time and part of it is the intimidation factor. In the safety of my studio I have no problem doing little watercolor studies and I love playing with the color and wetness of the washes. I know I can always color my sketches later and that may end up being the best option for me but for now I am going to start challenging myself to get the feel for working with the watercolor on the go even if these first few tries are in the safety of my own home.
For those of you who use watercolor in your sketches, what are your tips and methods?
