|"Classic Beauties" 5" x 10" original watercolor on 260lb Arches by Carrie Waller|
Today I'm sharing my sepia version of my pear painting. Painting in sepia is a great way to really understand values and make sure you are getting your darks, dark enough to make your lights pop. I started this exercise in the workshop I taught earlier this summer and just now finished it up. I love painting in sepia and when I first started painting in watercolor I painted only in sepia. I really think it helped me get where I needed to be when I started adding color into the mix. Sepia also has such a beautiful "old world" feel.
And here is a work in progress I'm working on for one of my favorite people in the art world:) I'll have more work in progress pictures on Wednesday.
I've been watching the Olympics this weekend. The stories of these amazing athletes has inspired me to push myself. All of these Olympians are following their passions and pushing their limits further than they ever thought they could. I want to do the same with my art and career. This is my dream and my passion. I have even more commitment and dedication. I'm going to push my limits. If they can do it, so can I and so can you!! We have to "just do it" :)
See you Wednesday:)
