Got some watercolors to try to start sketching outdoors, I figured it would be less of a hassle than setting up for oils or soft pastel. Anyhow, I ordered some WC sketchpads along with the watercolors among other things but a bottle of linseed oil broke in the box and damaged the WC pads (which I guess they knew since I wasn't charged for them). Luckily, nothing else was damaged thanks to plastic wrappings. This first sketch is done on a damaged section of the WC paper for practice being new to watercolor and what not.
