"Tea Time i", watercolour, 11.5 x 8"
This is my demonstration painting for my Tuesday nights' watercolour class, as we finish our unit on still life. From our shaded compositional sketch (made from life), we used strong, full strength colour, making sure that the value of colour applied was the final value we wanted. The actual colour of the objects were not taken in to account -this was actually a white pot and cup. No glazing here! The pure colour, wet juicy paint and single application of colour creates the luminosity. Makes you want to splash in some watercolour, doesn't it?
