Final illustration for my watercolor class at the Denver Botanic Gardens. I don't normally share this stuff too much, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  Big Grin

Wow....Ng I have a question for you. How long did that take you to do?

It would appear that you have access to an amount of patience that I could never hope to achieve. That's wonderful. Smile

Thanks!  Krell, I would estimate a solid... 30+ hours if you count from the initial thumbnails and composition ideas, then the final line drawing, the value study and then the final work.  This is spread over the last four weeks.

It's less a matter of having patience than it is distracting the part of your brain that gets bored so that the rest of your brain can work on the piece (in peace).  I either listen to music or have on a DVD of reruns that I know really well so I don't actually have to watch them to know what's happening.   Gotta keep the science side of my head from overthinking everything along the way.

The final drawing itself probably took 18-20 hours to complete.  In comparison, the watercolor ristra linked at the top took somewhere around 40-50 hours from initial sketches to final painting, with the actual painting part taking 25-30 hours, I'm guessing.  I think I went through a couple seasons of Castle on DVD. At least a season and a half.  Tongue  

I was physically exhausted for several days after I finished the painting, mostly because of the marathon sessions I put in the last few days before turning it in.  I think watercolor wears me out more than other media.  That was sort of a surprise to me.
