Struggles and grief, struggles and grief. lol! In my search for fast , loose watercolor at least it's keeping me trying if nothing else is accomplished.. I do like this, but don't consider it loose the way I see
'loose'. Like the color palette, . The composition was taken straight from the photo and so the center of interest is saying, "ok follow me and jump right off the page HERE! lol! Ok I'm learning with each one and that was the lesson for today. I had a suggestion from an amazing landscape artist to try some timed painting.. set 30 min then stop... OMG! that is the hardest thing for me to do .. this little 8x10 took me twice that long and that's why I can see the piddling and poking mostly on the leaves. NOT necessary to define each vein...It's so strange that I know that, but still insist on doing it .. not giving up though, and thanks Keith for the suggestion.
