This has been a week of small projects and minor adjustments to previous works. I worked on finishing the last big architectural, a smaller one I worked on a month ago, and the little watercolor from last time. I darkened up the shadows and added some yellow to the vegetation on this one. The photo doesn’t quite have the greens and brown bricks correct – there aren’t any real white areas – but it is the best my camera can do for now. I like the addition of the yellows in the trees and flowers. I think it complements the purple flowers quite well.
I studied the little watercolor from last time and decided to add some greenery to the top and more red flowers. I think it is more balanced now and is more pleasing to my eye. Funny how such a simple addition can improve a piece. I still think bigger might be better when I next use the nib pen. Just not too large because filling that tip can be a pain.
As a quick project I also made up more of the note cards with the little abstract watercolor flowers. I sold 4 to a single buyer last week and decided not only to replace those but add a few more. I had already made up the watercolor bases and inked them up so it took no time at all. You can check them out easily in my etsy store in the note card section.
