Painting class – watercolour still life

Leave a comment

Today we continued to work on watercolour, this time a planned still life. By planned I mean that we drew up the still life then painted over that.

As this was just a study to see what can be done with watercolour, I didn’t paint in a background at my teacher’s suggestion. But now I think it needs it as the glass at the rear seems to disappear into the white of the paper. I may revisit this and wash a faint background in.

Next week, we are going to paint without a plan to see what we can do with watercolour in a different way.

Still can’t wait to get back to acrylics!
