The Chair...take two

A few months ago I painted a small study, cropped version of a chair, junk out in "the yard". This week I am repainting that chair as a demonstration for a beginning watercolor class. For the "take two" larger version (16X20), I introduced an expanded palette of colors to include warmer tones in relation to what will be the "coolness" of the shadow. Placing warm intense color in front of cooler, less intense color will visually "push" the warmer shapes forward, creating an illusion of depth. "Chair" finale...coming soon.

Beautiful and delicately handled picture. I wish I could use watercolour but I find it too unforgiving for my hesitant nature! Maybe I need to fly across the pond and get some watercolour lessons!

your work is beautiful...I've not yet learned watercolor, but hope to before I finish my courses. I love the transparent affect that it provides.

Thank you for your comments. I also love the transparent effects, just can't get that look with any other media.

Ariel,

When I study the works of artists, I learn that they often paint over at least some part of a work to make adjustments or make corrections. Do you do this? I was thinking that thought as I looked at this equisite watercolor.

In watercolor, form and value is built up using successive layers. The first layer is the "underpainting" which is mostly covered with the next layers. Some of the under painting will come through d/t watercolor's transparent properties. Thank you for your question David.
