Watercolor 15 X 22
This is the painting I would have posted for day 30 if the weather had cooperated. We finally have some nice sunny days so I could take it outside and get a good photo of it. It was one of the paintings we started in the Jack Nolan workshop and it took me several painting sessions to complete it and put on the finishing touches. We started with a light wash of the 3 primaries over the whole painting and then decided, from the way that the wash dried which way the light would hit our subject. Of course mine was opposite the way that the painting was demonstrated so it took me some extra thinking to determine how my shadows would fall with the light coming from the left side. I'm happy with the way it turned out, it was a good learning experience.
