|:: project 5|
A great little exercise using colour and different size brushes. I have a real soft spot for spots too... love them! I decided to use cool colours and instead of black for the small marks I mixed up a dark grey, so it wasn't so dark! I'm quite pleased with how it turned out :)
|:: painting spots and adding more hue to |
the paint to make it a stronger colour
|:: used size 2 brush for the small marks|
|:: overlapping small marks on some of the spots|
I learnt a lot from this little project, here are a few:
- I need to be a bit looser with my painting and not so perfect - my spots turned out a little too neat!
- I feel I should have used a more warmer colour palette and the colours just don't look strong enough; and it's looking a little cool!
- I really love the effect of the "all over" small marks, it took quite a while and a bit of patience; and I nearly ran out of the grey watercolour I had mixed up!
note to self: mix more watercolour than needed!
