Tuesday Watercolour Class – Week Seven

Never come hungry to watercolour class! Our bakery still-life was not the most colourful subject we’ve had this term but I love the way the light hits the bread, buns and bagels. Keeping the lightest areas as translucent as possible is essential in order to create a luminous quality. My AM and PM demonstrations are shown here on the same sheet. The pale, creamy wash on the raisin bread is only slightly darker than the paper.

Once again, a prosaic subject stimulates some very exciting results as well as a bit of humour. Note the addition to the still-life (it wasn’t me) in the photo below.

By the way, I had my 30,000th view this morning. Thanks for following my blog. Your interest and support makes the whole project enjoyable and worthwhile.
