Out of time I am.
I’ve been working on this watercolor this week and now the week is over. Headed out on a much anticipated vacation next week, so I thought I’d check in before I disappear for a while.
This watercolor is 22 x 30. I love giant sheets of watercolor paper. I feel like painting everyday objects larger than real life opens them up to a bit of abstraction. objects become color blocks.
I’m wondering what you guys think of the drawing. I went REALLY loose. Dare I say to the point of considering it a contour drawing. Objects wind up looking a little less realistic. They tend to wiggle and move giving everything a little more personality. I think I like it. The last painting I did was a little more calculated and measured.
Being alone all day painting, I wind up looking at things way too closely and for way too long. Because of this I can’t be very objective. So help me out, what do you think. Drawings: Go tight or keep it loose?
I’m looking forward to seeing this one done. Oh well, guess it’s going to have to wait :)
