#30x30DirectWatercolor2018… Part Five

Marc Taro Holmes calls it direct watercolor while Liz Steel says straight to paint. Either way it’s quite the challenge to visualize the page and paint without a structural underdrawing.

I’ve now completed two thirds of the month’s challenge and I’m definitely more comfortable handling my brush and paints.

I took my paints to an outdoor concert. Great subjects but my painting was cut short as I spilled my water! Sigh.

I have a thing about ampersands! I discovered that I should have done the shading before I painted the details. More negative painting practice again.

Painted from a Sktchy photo. Another negative painting practice and another one of my favorites.

Foxgloves. I can’t grow them but I’m glad my friend can!

Cool and refreshing sour cherry cider! Another one of my favorites. I know many artists don’t like the blooms, also known as back-runs, but I love the variation in hues and the fuzzy edges.
