One subject, done twice
I gave up on my scanner and took ictures of the two watercolors of apples and an avocado that I had done yesterday. I spent a while on the first one, putting color down and then taking it out again, trying without much success to capture the moving highlights and shadows. The result looks better as a jpeg than in reality, as I’ve torn the paper up a bit.
Then I did a second version, going much more quickly and trying for more spontaneity. It didn’t quite work out – I stayed between the line with my color and pretty much followed what I saw… It was too late to try again, time to make dinner! The composition is better on the first one, but I did do the second one more quickly. And I won’t even mention the ones I threw away!
