New WATERCOLOUR in progress
Hello – OK here we are at the beginning of a new watercolour. The pictures posted show the work at the second glazing stage, plus a close up detail of the grapes.
You will notice that this is more or less the same set up as our last lesson, using one of my favourite props – the white ceramic jug. I particularly like this jug because of it’s shiny surface which picks up all the surrounding reflections, colours and shadows.
The main difference is the lighting and my choice of background – this time I have used a lighter coloured silk scarf. The tone of the finished painting should therefore be much brighter.
I am using thin glazes of transparent W&N artists’ quality watercolour, waiting until each layer is completely dry before applying the next colour. My palette is the same as the previous lesson used.
I will continue to post pictures of each stage so that you can watch how the painting progresses.
