A quiet day
what to do?
what to do?
what to paint?
A simple set-up
maybe a candlestick?
many layers of watery colour
that candle came in handy afterall
Although I came close this morning to giving in and reaching for a coloured pencil, I resisted!
This little watercolour sketch continues my explorations in watercolour in my small sketchbook. Thinking this will make a nice subject for a larger work?
I Have really enjoyed layering of thin watercolour washes...building colour slowly and thoughtfully
As I don't have any masking fluid... the wax candle was used, just not for inspiration to draw from!
Tip for the day: try allowing one layer to dry ( or use a hairdryer) then add another wash over the top to intensify or modulate the colours. i.e. green over green makes a darker shade, or red over green, will make a dark, rich green, or a browny shade, etc. experiment and see what results!
Exciting News yesterday - I sold a painting! yay!!
'Happy' and 'I wish...' have now gone to visit with Willow & Fox too, but if any readers wish to purchase - contact me! ($160 + postage)
