Ten days ago I posted a Prismacolor drawing of maple seed pods that became the beginning of a watercolor painting. Today I completed my 8×10 work of art.
First I added more details in Cobalt Blue, then Permanent Rose, and finally Cadmium Yellow. I did this layering to create the shape of the seed pods a couple of times.
My final step was to add highlights with a white Prismacolor pencil. Then I cropped my painting. This concludes my obsession with maple seed pods, unless I think of some other medium I want to try…maybe pastel?
