Playing with New Toys

Brown Sea Nettle

You know how pleased I was with the watercolor instruction book because it had exercises in it that would result in proper paintings while I learned how to use my new paints?  Well, despite that the first thing I did was a quick doodle of a jellyfish so I could color it in.

None of the exercises was of a jellyfish, so obviously my way was better.  Or something.

Had the shakes while I was inking it (damn you caffeine addiction) but other than that I'm pretty pleased with myself.  Still have a rather long way to go, but for a first attempt with proper watercolors it could certainly be worse.  Unfortunately, I can't get the colors true in the photograph, but you can get the idea.
