Illustration Friday - Polar

For this one I played with the idea of an old globe. I did a quick and rough wash of a brown ochre color and let it dry. Then I painted over that to create a stained effect. Turned out pretty much how I imagined it would. It's fun playing with layers of color.

I like it a lot, especially the colors. Thank you for the explanation of how you made your image, as I am pretty terrible at watercolor.

I like the looseness of this!

Thanks for the comments. I'm still just learning watercolor so the explanations help me remember how I made something. And something of mine being described as loose is such a great compliment as I have been trying to cultivate that in my work. Much appreciated.
