It's not quite finished yet, but it's pretty close. This was an exercise that I did in Caroline Linscott's watercolor class last week. I am pretty excited with the way this little apple is shaping up. Of course, Caroline was giving hints, helps, and lots of instruction to us along the way while she painted an apple, too.
Feast your eyes on her apple!
Beautiful! Watching her paint while I was painting was really helpful. We took a break from our sunflowers to practice some things with this little apple painting, but those sunflowers have not been forgotten.
Well, now it looks like this!
Okay, never mind a lot of the green dots and dashes in the middle of the painting - just remember those are the masking fluid that I used to reserve the white paper for highlights. However, if you compare the dark green (flat and yucky) leaves to the (lively and fun) leaves at the bottom of the paper, you can see a BIG (thank you, Caroline!) difference. I am really excited about the way this painting is progressing. It is, of course, still a work in progress - but I am looking forward to seeing where this little painting travels.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering what her sunflower painting looks like... Feast your eyes on this little beauty by Caroline Linscott!
