Picture a Day #210 – Vase of Flowers with Pear Finished!

I blasted through yesterday and accomplished a lot of work on my current watercolor painting.

Today I was up early, and finished it! Still looking at it and wondering if I should do anything else, but I believe it’s a wrap.

I added Permanent Alizarin Crimson, and then continued to repeat layers of all the previously used shades: Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow Pale, and Cerulean Blue. These last two images were taken this morning, when the light was brighter so it looks like the background is paler.

I darkened the leaves, added shadows, and created depth and volume. Finally, I was satisfied! Here is the final product.
