ORIGINAL FULL SHEET WATERCOLOR PAINTING IN PROCESS
Still more progress on my ginger watercolor painting
Spent quite a bit of time today working on this ginger watercolor painting. I'm actually working with glazes which is unusual for me, but I realized I needed to be careful with the color otherwise the flowers won't look white: I think I may need to do some lifting later. I still need to work on some more mid and dark values, then I'll work on the last blossom grouping which is my main point of interest. I've been doing some negative painting for the background to carve out the flowers. Had to do small sections at a time so I could soften my lost petals before the paint dried. Even though I am fabulously lucky to live in Hawaii, watercolors dry very fast. Hopefully I'll be able to finish tomorrow so I can get started on some more big ideas I've had.
