Here was my first attempt. Please note it was on used watercolor paper so the paper was compromised, I made no attempt to try and make a finished work of art; just practice.
|It looks better in the photo than real life.|
* Used a cool transparent color for the table
* Placed a dark purple at the base of the fruit to ground them
* Use white crayon to block out the white of the paper ( did not work well and I did not have a liquid frisket on hand)
* Used transparent colors on the fruit, let it dry then layered over with more transparent colors.
RESULTS: Just OK
This time I exaggerated the colors and added white just to see if it helps the luminosity.
|I'm not impressed.|
I will try again.
The Windmill Easel is great for directing the flow of the juicy watercolor paints; it turns 360 degrees.
|I need to give it a rest!|
