Patiently painting layer upon layer of color trying to grab the iridescence for what abalone is known, without using white. But at the end of class, I was finished and pretty darn happy with the effect!
Our watercolor class on Monday focused on objects of nature. I was totally amazed by nature's details, often overlooked, by really seeing and studying and painting. The edges of a butterfly's wing, the colors of white, the shadows of feathers… My eyes were opened with appreciation and awe.
