WIP - Peonies!

Peonies again!

This is on Arches hot press.  The paint blossomed in some areas, but I like that since this is an organic subject.

WIP - Veggie Stiff Life

This little still life was done with a student.

First - which I did not take a photo of - we added a very light layer of raw sienna on garlic, light yellow on tomato and squash.

Second - we added more color to the veggies - as seen here.

Last - we added additional layers in detail on each veggie, shadows and the blue stripes on the dish towel
This was an exercise in painting a little looser; not all of the details were added, nor as much time expended.

I think it turned out as a cute little still life.

We each used a watercolor board - mine was Arches, his was Canson.  We both felt the Arches performed better - it was easier to blend and also  lifted better.
