LAST WORKSHOP EFFORT
Well, I can honestly say this koi painting is finished! ha ha (I think knowing when to stop and walk away is one of the hardest things for me to do.) There always seems to be just one more thing I can do to it...which ruins it.
Masking fluid is off and it's cropped a bit (mostly from the top and right side), with a few splashes of white and color in there for bubbles...or something.
But it's done. I am learning, still. Everyday is an experiment in water media!
Back to the watercolors for a while: a start on the little painting (painted to fit into some nice square mats given to Jerry by some photo buddies of his - thanks Marion and Maurice). A lily pad and stems of flowers poking out of the water. I need to sharpen up some areas without overworking it...and call it done.
(This is from a photo taken by Doris Glovier who shares her work with her painting friends at WatercolorWorkshop. Thanks, Doris.)
