DAY #238 – DAHLIA REDO

#238 - DAHLIA REDO

It was so nice to wake up and hop into my outdoor shower.  It will probably only look clean and pristine for about a week.  I better enjoy it while I can!

Today I repainted a bud vase of dahlias.  I wasn’t thrilled with my first attempt:

#233 - ORANGE DAYLILY (2)

because I had tried to lift the watercolor from the petals but the paper pilled.  Today I painted them with the wet on wet technique, no layers, nothing to lift.  The flower petals are technically a lot cleaner in today’s painting.

It’s amazing how different the two paintings are.  I felt like I learned a lot from the first painting.  By the time I had finished it, I had finally figured out how I should have tackled it in the first place.  Guess that’s why they say hindsight is 20/20.

That whole learning curve thing.

So that was it for today.

Short and sweet.
