4.5.10 L.White

Hey, here's today's watercolor attempt. Not quite what I wanted so I'm repainting...


  1. this is awesome. are you using using masking agent on this?

  2. I masked the figure when I did the background. That's what I 'm changing when I repaint it. I didn't like the hard line it left around the figure. What I like about watercolor is when the color starts mingling with other colors and makes cool stuff happen that you didn't anticipate. With the masking fluid it stops a lot of that from happening. Plus, I want to change the color balance a bit and use a more opaque red instead of transparent (Cad red instead of Alizren Crimson and Quad. Yellow).

  3. I just like how utterly dead the swan looks.
