Apple Basket for Watercolor Workshop
I finished this apple basket painting last evening. It was painted from a photograph provided by the Watercolor Workshop for the October project where everyone paints from the same photograph. This was painted on 1/4 sheet Arches 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper with mostly Holbein watercolors. Every painting I start I decide I am going to paint it in a loose, watercolorly style and I always end up with a tight, clean, anal watercolor. It's hopeless! I think I will have to give up my dream to be a loose woman! All I can say is that it is not for the effort of trying.
