Untitled, 15 x 11", watercolour
This is the first demonstration painting I did for the lovely women in my Fernie, BC workshop this past weekend. We spent the first day making value/shape patterns from photo reference, exploring the possibilities that each photo presented in an effort to make a personal statement rather than simply to copy the photo. The second morning I did this colourful watercolour from my value sketch, which enabled my colour to be loose, vibrant and fresh. Gotta love that red tree.
