TROPICAL PLANT, CONTINUED



More work on this one - I'm not moving too slow, but trying to leave things undone, walking away and then going back to look more carefully.  


And using the red viewfinder to see the values better.  I've darkened areas where it should have been left lighter, according to the photo.  Of course, I could just choose my own light path and try for that. 




Finished.

Half sheet Arches 140# cold press paper.

What do you think?

RH Carpenter said...

LOL, Deb! It's too much fun to take a workshop from Carol - can't resist - and you KNOW I still need lots of help.
Teresa, thanks! How are you??

I think this is beautiful too, Rhonda. Love those tropical colors!

Caroline Simmill said...

This is really good, how do you get the brightness in your color, it seems to shine!

RH Carpenter said...

Thanks so much, Celia, Sherry and Caroline. Caroline, I just kept the green from mixing with the reds as much as possible, and when it did mix, it was very wet-in-wet on very wet paper so it didn't seem to dull as much - and I got lucky! ha ha
