Yesterday had a painting afternoon with a friend and we painted pears (again) . My camera took this with a flash, it's under glass,
and looks washed out, but you get the idea. Maybe I'll photograph it tomorrow in daylight.
p.s. still problem with the blogger photo uploads, so I'm using Picasa.
Ok, I've taken another photo this morning to see how it looks in natural light.. I'm not impressed, this one is not exactly it either, so LOL ! lets say it's sort of in between. !!!
Also want to mention I've been studying more and more about transparent watercolor. It will help make better watercolor. Clear, fresh and glowing.
An excellent book on this subject is Wonderful World of Watercolor by Mary Baumgartner. It covers everything you need to know and more.. . I haven't put it down for 2 weeks, and am putting into practice what it teaches... Reading is good, practicing is better.
