Last Wednesday I complained about my ineptitude with watercolor. This week, I plod on, with three quick attempts at the same subject. Above is the most successful with regard to the look that I want. I found that if I did not plan in pencil at all, I got a better result.
This first attempt was well planned with pencil, and it is too bright and too tight. Struggle is written all over it.
This second attempt is too loose and too tight.
And while I still can’t call the third attempt just right, I’m learning.
