I am working from Veronica Lawlor's book, One Watercolor a Day, a good tool for trying out different techniques without pressure.
This is how far I got since around the 25th of June!
|Tackling roses, a subject I find particularly difficult|
|Painting only in red, with juicy wet-in-wet washes around a dry shape|
|Not sure what kind of colours this is. It was supposed to be split complementaries, but I got confused somewhere along the way|
|This is what happens when you try to use old masking fluid - the lesson? If the bottle has been opened more than a couple of months, throw it out. I think I will stay away from masking fluid for now, despite the flexibility it offers|
|Another attempt at a rose,with masking fluid this time. Not very exciting.|
