I like fast, immediate and loose

..erm, in my art of coarse. Laugh

I confess, the whole idea of 'sketching' in watercolor boggles my mind. When I think of sketching I think of succinct lines, not of shadows and shapes. Yet, the use of shadows and shapes helps one's mind fill in the details that aren't necesarily there. You've broadened my perspectives in that respect. Thank you!

Now, if you will, indulge me with a few favorites of my own:

Bag End in Ink washes - Daniel Reeve

Talk about shadows and shapes. I love that this entire composition is done in different shades of the same color. I can't stop looking at all the details accompished with such simplicity.

My other fav:

Tuatara - by Daniel Reeve

This pic also doesn't seem to have too many different colors, mostly different shades of brown and green. Yet the feeling of shadows and dapples of light is so strong you can almost see the fern fronds moving.

Koru: Maori symbol representing a fern frond as it opens. The koru reaches towards the light, striving for perfection, encouraging new, positive beginnings.
