Few strokes rose
After yesterday's painting I wanted to hit the ground running and paint a rose in as few strokes as possible. Looking for value shapes and leaving the brightest whites white.
I can say this is not a wimpy watercolor and that was one of the goals for today.
What I have learned so far:
The dark shadows are not as dark as they appear in the photograph.
Use the biggest brush possible, establish value shapes. Move on .
