Day 5 of the Direct Watercolor challenge. I’m having more success (and less muddiness) with my darks since I switched out my burnt umber for sepia. Indanthrone blue (or sometimes Indigo) and Sepia are what I’m using in those darkest darks.
Day 6. A portrait of my daughter Kavya. Painted while she read a book.
Day 7. The East Bay Hills as seen from the Warm Springs Bart Station in Fremont.
Day 8 is a portrait from a life drawing session.
Am I learning from the challenge? I’m sure I am, but it’s not something I can clearly articulate or point to in my work. Yet.
