Morning Glories WIP
Hope you will tag along with me as I finish this watercolor. Using a photo taken last Monday of Morning Glories that looked a bit shriveled in the morning cold air, I quickly sketched the general shapes of the leaves and flowers.
Using a palette of Indanthrene Blue, Cobalt Blue, Quin. Violet, Quin. Rose, Viridian, Sap Green, Quin. Gold and Quin. Burnt Orange, I began slowly laying in paint. You can see from the photo how lightly the first layers are. I wait until an area is completely dry before going back to work in more color or change values or shapes.
