Jan 2015 30 in 30 - Day 4

6" x 9"
Another demo painting out of Pat Weaver's Watercolor Simplified book.  Despite using the colors she suggested, I could NOT very my painting to have the vibrance that her cat had.  Again, each time I tried to "fix" something I made it worse.  But if I hadn't tried to fix things then the painting would be very pale and unfinished looking.  I guess trying to learn to paint from a book isn't really a good idea.  I wish I could watch her actually work with the paints in her palette and how she applies it to the paper because I believe that is where the disconnect lies.  Practice practice practice.... I just feel like maybe I am practicing the wrong techniques.
