Time for a three step watercolor. It is peony Quest time so let's paint peonies. Step one below is showing how to block in the dark shapes that create the connecting forms.
Now that the fun times are over ( I love step 1). It is time to find the mid-tone shapes and connect those. This is the make or break (step). The painting will fail or succeed based on if you can make this step happen.
Now it is time to put in the background and move on to more peony adventures. But first I wanted to share my new favorite painting called "What Glove?"
This painting makes me smile every time I look at it.
