Day 4 of my direct watercolor practice was created from a photograph I took at the Jousting Tournament in Poway. This boy was sitting at one of the booths on the tournament grounds. I liked his costume and his posture as he sat, probably bored to death.
As usual with direct watercolor, my technique was to go from very light to very dark using glazing as I built up the image to define the subject. I did not draw the image with pencil first, using only watercolor and brush.
