And still really enjoying playing with watercolors! I'm working with the exercises in two different books--that's where most of these images come from. Though I can't resist adding a bit of background or even a gnome.
I stick the finished exercises in the corner cabinet (the two shelves not occupied by Josie's castle people,) not because I think they're worthy of display, but so I can look at them while at meals and figure out what worked and what didn't.
That yellow iris looks flat--needs highlights; need to do better on preliminary sketches; the puddles on the road actually work but the whole picture is kinda blah; and what is supporting that eggplant anyway?
In anticipation of a mini-watercolor workshop that a talented friend is giving next week, I've upgraded my supplies according to her suggestions--and spent a breathtaking (to me, anyway) amount of money on better quality brushes and paints-which just arrived yesterday and I haven't used them yet.
We'll see . . .
