Drawing and watercolour (cont.)

Quick watercolour sketches continued

I thought I would try some fruits of similar colours, so have a peach, a plum and some grapes. Have prepared three colours, Purple Lake with Burnt Umber for the darker areas, Cadmium Orange with Emerald for the lighter areas and just Alizarin Crimson.

Watercolour exercise 11(4)

We are asked to focus on tone, line and surface texture. In this one I focused on tone.

Watercolour exercise 11(5)

This was going to be about texture, but I liked it like this and it looks quite linear, the line here being white.

Watercolour exercise 11(6)

This is also linear but with a little sponging for texture.
