The Columbine watercolor is complete. I tried doing a vignette for the first time where you have the composition touch three sides of the piece, don’t have a definite border, and incorporate the beauty of the paper. The center of focus is off-center and the composition reads left to right, up and down, and connects on three sides.
Small quick study for a larger work I intend to do later.
I will have to revisit this topic and try again!
This morning my clematis bloomed and it was just to beautiful to not paint!
Okay, I admit it, I went and found an unfinished painting and added the foreground to be able to finish another painting for day 6. I played around in the foreground with Daniel Smith’s Metallic Watercolor in Pale gold to create the effect of sparking glass on the beach.
This work has a light gray wash background to set off the delicate branch and blossoms of the Strawberry Guava plant.
