the sketchbook project: Autumn inspired pages WIP

Finally got around to posting updates to my sketchbook project pages.
Been super delayed due to my impromptu Vacation and other work stuff.


Here's the progress of what I have worked on inspired by Autumn, Drake and my sister(Paolo thinks she doesn't look like her).

I used Prang watercolor and 3 kinds of brushes: A chinese brush, Sakura and Namura brushes in diff sizes.
The Paper of the sketchbook is not actually that good for watercolor so I switched to using my own paper for some of the other pages.

I usually start off with a rough sketch(super-rough sketch!).

I usually paint in the face first or leave it for last.

The leaves actually make me think of waffles...
I think I need to correct that but I don't know how now=(.
My significant other, also known as my best critique 
is advising me to add another color...
Anyway, I finished it using the same colors 
and am deciding later on how to improve it.

Happy Easter Egg Hunting!
