Pouring Demonstration

I did a pouring demonstration for a local womens club this evening of autumn leaves hanging on a tree. The size is 14"x18" and it is on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I had already done the preliminary drawing by using the grid method.  I wet the painting with a sponge and then dropped in the paint using an eye dropper.  After drying the painting, I started to do negative painting to make the positive leaves stand out.  I will finish that part and then do the detailing to finish the painting.  It was a nice evening and the refreshments were delicious.

My favorite things are autumn leaves and this is looking marvelous. I can't wait to see it finished!

Hi Sherry...I also love autumn leaves, although I am not too crazy about autumn - the fact that is welcomes winter! Ugh! I am also eager to have it finished - at this point in a painting I want to see the final results!
