Watercolor & Graphite 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Working small is hard! Yikes. I am not sure about the random color. I know the more I do of these the better and more controlled it will get. I think that in this piece there is too much white underneath. It’s hard to know when the underpainting goes down. I think for the next underpainting I will do some block out, throw down the color, pick up the block out and then do another layer of washed color. That might give me some depth and randomness but also less of a “stained” look. I think 4″ x 6″ or thereabouts is a nice size. Working smaller goes faster, but is almost too small depending on the composition.
