Another quick watercolor sketch after a self-portrait by Spanish portraitist, Ramon Casas. Discovering new artists is so refreshing and inspiring. I recommend looking him up if you aren’t yet familiar with his work. 💛

Little watercolor lamb head for today. No drawing underneath. Just shapes of color again! Interpretation after Agnus Dei by Francisco de Zurbarán (1635).

Watercolor interpretation after a Rubens self-portrait. Challenged myself by starting without a drawing underneath. Just shapes of color layered on top. 💛

Arce in ballpoint done from life. Trying to stay in the moment and not worry so much.
