Monthly Sketch Project - March #1


9 in x 12 in Arches 140 lb CP watercolor paper, Daniel Smith watercolors

I like the original composition of the photo by Gillian that was posted for Monthly Sketch Project. I normally tend to stay away from warm colors. I did like how the background washes came out and the color of those washes.

I like the background washes too. They were the first things that I saw and I thought how effective they were in making the onions stand out. I like your style.

This is one of my favorites. Love the blue back ground.
