The completed “Lunch Sketch #7”

I finished this lunchtime sketch of Arnold Schwarzenegger eventually. It took me 5 lunches to complete, that’s about 30 minutes each time so I guess it took two and a half hours to finish.
I got bored with this early into the execution but I stuck with for practice reasons. Personally I want to be more expressionistic with my art and not so detailed. Still, I learned a lot, becoming good with watercolour is all about practice, practice and practice.

Lunch Sketch #7

I am struggling with this, my colours are becoming muddy. Still, it’s a learning process, I am discovering and experimenting but most importantly, it makes me happy.

Lunch Sketch #7 ( 3rd day )

A half hour per day; lunch time sketching is a slow process. I take a photo each day just in case I mess the whole thing up and have to trash it!

Lunch Sketch #7 ( second lunch break )

I am finding it hard to find time to illustrate and paint during my lunch periods right now. I do have time, I just need the office to be calm when I illustrate and it has not been of late. Such is life….

Lunch Sketch #7

I thought it would be a good painting exercise to capture Arnold Schwarzenegger’s muscles with water colour. This will probably take a whole week of lunchtime sketching, this is day Nr. 1.
