Pooh's roughs

I do a lot of colour roughs before my watercolours, I almost prefer them to the final illustration, there's so much life in them. I really enjoy this part when my line and colour can be very loose.

Stef,

We cannot say enough about these, they are so great! I also love to do the roughs more than the finals. These three are beauties! -Arna

I woundn't know wich one to chosse, both roughs and watercolours are just wonderful!!

Elliot said...

You've managed to bring much of the same life that exists in the roughs to your finished pieces, which is something I dont' think happens that often.
Lovely.

Great to see the ruffs. Nicely accomplished, even at this stage you have the palette down.
