Watercolour Wednesday: Well

Hello, all! Sorry I've been a bit lax in posting. I have things to post, too, I've just been all over the place and I was completely without internet yesterday.

As for this picture, it's sketched in pencil and coloured in exclusively watercolour. I spent a lot of time thinking about it, and I'd like to do landscape drawings. I'm really inspired by shows like Gravity Falls, which -while it is made for children- has exceptional backgrounds. Since it's supposed to be set in a town in Oregon, it's full of lush forests and beautiful vistas that just really make me want to draw. This is my first attempt at a sort of creepy forest setting. It wasn't totally successful, the perspective is a little weird on both the well and the cave, but hey, I'm learning, right? I'm also learning that watercolour is both forgiving and not. If you put down colour, you better want it there, because it's going to stay. OR it's going to make a huge mess if you try to get rid of it.

Anyway, I hope you like this picture. I know it's not great, but I'm hoping the more I create the better I will get and eventually things will look more like they're supposed to.
