Among the Blue by Shadow-Wolf Among the Blue by Shadow-Wolf

This past weekend I was house sitting at my sister's without my work computer, and thought it would be a great opportunity to make a sample for possible future watercolor commissions.  So I took one from a friend to suss out exactly what it would take to do 8.5" X 11" full body watercolor paintings, and this is the final result! 

This was commissioned by Hfoursaur as a gift for Kimmikart, of Kimmikart's dread-locked werewolf character Mausey.  I took (crappy) work in progress photos over the weekend so I could document how I went about it.  One of my sister's cats, Cammy, chose the pose for me among the three gesture sketches I did.  Which, as you can see, she indicated by stepping on it while I was working.  XD  See those here in my tumblr -…

Working on this over the weekend gave me a great idea of what commissions like this might cost.  So I am currently open for a single painting slot, the details for which you can find here:………

So pretty! Not only are you great with this medium, but the colours go together so well, I love the blue. I'm about to try watercolours myself and I'm wondering how do you keep the paper from warping? Keep up the awesome work <3

You know, the paper did warp some while I was working, not sure how to avoid warping entirely.  The below commenter had a great suggestion, using watercolor blocks with the edges glued down.  Or, maybe try stretching the paper first, by spritzing it with water from a spray bottle and taping the edges down?  I did this in college when working with materials that would warp with use, and it helped a lot!

Buy a pad of watercolour paper that has the side of all the pages glued together :)
