Magnification

Watercolour exercises 32 (2)Watercolour _ 5 June 2015 _

56 x 38 cm

For this I zoomed in to one of the photographs I took for the previous exercise. I wanted to remove the masking fluid but find it adds to the picture so I will leave it.

N.B. : I misread the instructions, magnification is meant to be about one image. So I will call the other two paintings “Free Expression” which is the next exercise and probably describes them better anyway. And I will continue with the image of the rose under magnification.

Same image. Darkened midtones and printed both image and reverse, then cut them in half and collaged them, selecting an area to paint. I started with a small drawing to get used to the shapes.
