Simplicity

Two Gerberas


My watercolor sketchbook has so many purposes and lately I've been exploring a style closer to realism.

I've always enjoyed and appreciated realistic painting, but it has never really moved me. But trying to capture what nature has presented exactly as she has presented it has been an amazing learning experience for me, and to be honest, I'm finding it a wonderful process.

I'm using this exercise as a way to focus on values in watercolor.  Using the same color to create different depths of color that help present a sense of depth.  It's a lot harder than it looks, but is very personally satisfying.
