Lounging 6" x 9" Watercolor
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.
