|Estuary at KVI
Here's a little watercolor of the stream and bank behind the beach, with some tips on technique. I used a photo for inspiration--then lost the photo, so I'm sorry I can't show it to you.

|Value study; noticing where the lights and darks are
2. When working in the studio I have the luxury of doing a value study. This gives me a chance to look more closely at the scene and make some more decisions about what to include.
When painting on scene, I often have another piece of paper to try out colors before applying them to the painting.
Next time we'll splash--or brush--on the color! Oh, and add detail. You won't miss it if you follow me by email (top left corner of the blog page). I hope you join me!
