Fast sketches with a time deadline are great for many reasons. The first is that you get to do a little watercolor painting very quickly – so if you are short on time, it’s perfect! Plus you’ll have to work very fluidly, just to be able to get the painting done quickly. So, you’ll get a chance to practice wet-into-wet technique in every painting. And, you’ll have to develop the ability to simplify the subject, and to be decisive with the brush.!

Fast Sketching Exercises

Fast sketching is great for many reasons. The first is that you get to do a little watercolor painting very quickly – so if you are short on time, it’s perfect! Plus you’ll have to work very fluidly, just to be able to get the painting done quickly. So, you’ll get a chance to practice wet-into-wet technique in every painting. And, you’ll  have to develop the ability to simplify the subject,  and to be decisive with the brush. All are great reasons to practice two-minute drills every day.

This is a scene inspired by Folly Cove, a favorite painting spot on Cape Ann.  It’s a few rocks sitting in calm, reflective water. And it uses one of my favorite color combinations – Cadmium Red Light and Cerulean Blue.

It’s a quick video worth the watch and the practice.
