©Pears, Watercolor In Progress, March 16, 2012
What a week! Snow, sleet, rain and more rain! Today's forecast is more of the same. A good day to spend in the studio.
This is a new painting I started this week, and the only one that I was able to get a photograph of. By using miskit on the outside edge of the pears and leaves, I was able to work quickly on the background moving around the sawed edges of these leaves. I think I will leave the background as it is for now and work on the pears and table. The colors used are Indanthrone Blue, Verditor Blue, Permanent Green Lt mixed with a touch of Ind. Blue and Bordeaux, all Daniel Smith Watercolors.
