PAIR OF PEARS
In my attempts to work thru various styles and watercolor techniques, I thought I'd simplify the subject matter and treat it somewhat 'differenty' each day this week (as I can).
I returned last night to a pair of pears - wonderful shapes and varying hues .. and worked on glazing methods. For these two, I applied over 6 glazes, some wet into wet, some wet on dry. It took a bit longer than I would have imagined since I had to wait for each layer to dry before applying the next - a time consideration I need to be aware of during my workweek. I made good time of the waiting though and Rebecca and I went for a bit of walk in between glazes.
I like the realism this technique can produce, and the careful application of paint and glaze was a good meditative approach I can see using when I need to calm down! LOL
We had a great rain yesterday -- yahoo! From where I work to a bit less back home -- I think I saw the plants dancing ....
Have a great day!
