Illustration Friday-Week 17

The Illustration Friday Challenge this week captures my little quacker clinging to an umbrella to ride out the storm in a puddle..  I had fun with this one because I switched up my medium.  I've been wanting to try watercolors so I gave it a whirl.

Now, for all you watercolourist out there, be easy on me because like I already said,  this is the first time I've ever painted with watercolors.  Thank goodness for YouTube.   I still have so much to learn about washes and I guess basically everything about watercolors.    So yesterday I went to my library and found a few books on watercolor.  I will be reading them from cover to cover.

Illustration Friday Challenge topic for this week is "umbrella."  This is what I came up with.


This is a lighter version of it.  The top one I took a picture at night and this one was during the day.  I like them both but to get that stormy feel I like the darker one.  What do you think?

If you want to check out my other Illustration Challenges you can find them here.

Until next time, it's time for me to get back to the drawing board.
