|6 x 8" watercolor|
Friday, July 27, 2012
It was my turn to choose the challenge of the month in a Facebook watercolor group I'm in. I decided on a still life piece for us for July. I chose the still life project because I wanted to try one myself. So for the whole month I've been thinking about possible subjects. Also, I had seen a still life with a dark background somewhere that caught my eye and I kind of wanted to try that. I say "kind of" because I could see how it might go very badly. It finally came together more when I found this pretty fig to paint. Everything was going well with the painting and it was looking nice with the light background that was developing. It took some deciding to plunge in with the dark paint and possibly ruin what I had done. I think the decision to try the dark background turned out okay since the whole setting was dark. I'll try this again sometime.
