Daily Illustration #53: Something I Never Do...(Until Now)

It's a kind of rule for me that I never do traditional art. In learning art as an adult, I began learning art digitally, and vowed never to go in for all that mess of the traditional stuff.

But it turns out that with water brushes and watercolour pencils there is no mess. So, just as a one-off experiment, thought I'd give it a go.

Conclusion: it's very different and would need a lot more practice. But wanted to be brave, in honour of all the people bravely trying *digital* painting because of my enthusiasm.

I also now see why everyone puts beside their scanned pictures "the original looks better and much brighter". It does.

May not repeat this experiment, but it was more fun than I expected. And  at least if computers ever cease to work, there'd be some sort of replacement for my beloved digital programs :-).

Normal service resumes tomorrow.
