The Muses, our Thursday painting group, painted yesterday ... another monochromatic watercolor still life because they enjoyed doing it so much last Thursday. We featured a ceramic bowl created by Rosie's son Craig and incorporated some fruit, leaves and a wine bottle. We pulled it all together with our two pieces of fabric - a dark tone and a light tone.
This is my effort from yesterday and I am basically happy with it. I used cerulean blue from my watercolor palette. I discovered that I have two different brands of cerulean blue and since they were in the same well on my palette, this painting, although monochromatic, is a mixture of my two cerulean blues. The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper.
