It is harvest season at my CSA farm and every week I had a huge eggplant in my basket. I had to paint it!
For the first attempt, I used a pre-painted ground that was destined to become an abstract watercolor. But I got stuck, so I recycled it.
For the second one, I used directional washes.
I am starting to have a lot of fun painting for the bin. I am sure my washed will get better after the workshop with Jane Blundell in October. She is the pigment guru. Knowledge of pigment is essential to get good washes. Good paper and brushes help too...
