Toro! Ole!

For media we got a new assignment to do in Watercolors and Gouache. The assignment was originally to find a label at the supermarket and remake it, in the end he left it to be open to whatever we wanted.

The demo our professor showed was an awesome rooster drawing with the word "Red" written fancily in the background. It was a really cool painting with alot of movement and feathers floating around. I wanted to do something similar, so I tried to come up with an animal I would have fun drawing that had alot of action. Bulls are pretty intense so I went with that.

Here's my beautiful sketch. It's pretty much a finished piece already.

Honestly, I don't remember how I managed to turn that scribble into this finished ink drawing. All I know is that it took a long time and it wasn't fun.

After that I made some copies of the ink drawing and transferred it onto some watercolor board with lacquer thinner. It leaves a grainy imprint of the drawing on the board to have a good base to paint on.

This one is the gouache painting. It originally started out as the watercolor one, but I ended up going to dark on it and the only solutions was to fix it with gouache.

To make sure I didn't mess up the watercolor again I made sure to keep the colors a lot softer and thinner. The bull took about five or six thin watery layer and the background was just a big puddle of water I swirled and dipped color into.

quick question. you mention transferring images to watercolor paper using paint thinner. i've never heard of this method, how is it done?
