On Tuesday, I shared one of my mapping projects with you and today, I'm sharing the first installment of the other one with you. If you've been around for more than a year, you might remember that I participated in 30 Days of Lists last March as well. It's such a fun project and I find it a great way to just center my thoughts and my mind. This year I decided to add an additional component, 30 days of map related art completed with ink and watercolors (which is basically a totally new medium to me - so I'd love to hear your pro tips!).
Days 1 & 2: South America & Africa
Days 3 & 4: Australia & New Zealand
Days 5 & 6: Antarctica & Iceland
Day 7: North America (the hardest to sketch so far)
So far, I'm loving 30 Lists even more this time around and I think that's because I've added the additional art component. Since I've never really worked with watercolor before - its a challenge for me. The part I've struggled with the most is filling in these big shapes with color.
Do you paint with watercolors? What are your tips?
