Garlic and onions
Here's what I've been doing today and yesterday - this is an exercise in values from the Painting Friends forum. First off I did a value sketch using charcoal, trying to identify light, medium and dark values. I then used this as a guide for the watercolour painting. Actually I think I like the sketch better than the painting!
Reference photo was by yabby, from the Wet Canvas image library.
Watercolour: 9" by 12"
Sketch: A4 (just a bit smaller than the painting)
