Usually, if I am working in watercolor, my next step will be to make a small thumbnail sketch of the composition, working out the light and dark values. Especially the darks. However, with this canvas I just used my photo reference and jumped right on.
I have also noticed in paintings of late - especially using acrylics - that I don't tone down my colors. Interesting to watch and learn of my own preferences over the years. I like color.
This previous photo is not yet the finished work. The painting is continuing to evolve. I think it is nearly done. Tomorrow I will see it again with fresh eyes, and decide what finishing touches are required. Thanks for watching the progress thus far.
