Monochromatic Watercolor: Jean
This is my painting for day 6 for the Challenge, 30 Paintings in 30 Days from the Slices of Life website of Leslie Saeta.
This painting is 12" x 9" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Canson watercolor paper. The linear portion of this painting was painted wet into wet using a skewer dipped in Payne's Grey watercolor on wet paper and then the shadows were painted on with a brush. This is completely monochromatic - Payne's Grey on white paper. The photo appears to have a rose tint - this is not in the original
This will be the lesson for my watercolor class this coming Monday night at Riverside Art Center.
The source for this painting is a photograph I found on Wet Canvas from the photographer Lost Art.
