More WC Practice
The first was done in my large watercolor Moleskine, and I chickened out and used a pen first. Later, after thinking I'm such a chicken, I went for straight watercolor with minimal guidelines. I then threw caution to the winds and added a little background. I must get over my fear of making a complete mess, especially with backgrounds.
The odd thing that occurred is that the alizarin crimson on the Moleskine is dull, yet the same paint on the Fabriano Aristico is bright. The other colors are about the same, and the photo does not show the alizarin crimson differences. Lukas pan watercolors. Perhaps I used too much water each time in the Moleskine.
