5x7 watercolor on acid free paper Not for sale
A friend from the Artist Guild brought me bunch of fabulous crabapples.
A big thank you to Phyllis Davis.
I am on a quest to try and get my watercolors to look as if the same artist
painted them as my oils. It is a lot of fun.
There are two different types of crabapples in the container.
You can see the varied colors on the top left and right sides.
I have never painted crabapples before so I decided to do some
studies and become familiar with them first.
I used cartridge paper and a mechanical pencil then
I tried some watercolor just for color samples on top of a few of the drawings.
If they are on a poor quality paper I am apt to be more free.
I am learning and practicing the fracturing method for watercolor
until I feel I am consistent so I will not be offering them for sale.
After saying that about the paper quality...it can be hard to goof up
on good paper, but I did.
I ruined the lower part of the #1 when I became
carried away with water. It is in my moleskin book which is a nice paper.
It sure makes it easier not to part with it!
