Picture a Day #184-Thank You, and I’m Still Painting!

Personal connections bring the Real World into cyberspace!

It’s a lot of fun watching my latest watercolor painting unfold, one color at a time. I began with a Prismacolor drawing, using a Goldenrod pencil. Then my first layer of color was Cadmium Yellow Pale.

Next I used Cerulean Blue to fill in the background, change some of the yellow to green on the pears and the leaves, and add a first layer to the plums.

My third layer of color was Permanent Alizarin Crimson. I used this to turn the plums purple, and fill in the foreground. I also added some shadows.

My next step will most likely be to add more yellow. Can’t wait to see how it will look!
