I forgot to post this last night — and of course by “forgot” I mean I was up too late and I got too tired to do anything except crawl into bed.
I have a tendency to think of things from dark to light and opaquely. I understand glazing and other optical mixing techniques, but I never really use them. So I’ve never really understood how to make watercolor look good. With all of the dark-to-light work I’ve got coming up, I thought (as I often do) it’s good to flex those creative muscles and try something completely different for awhile — I’ll be experimenting with a light-to-dark approach in my free time.
I’ll let you know what I come up with.
