Watercolor in Stages
I thought I would show how I go about developing a watercolor. I started by put a masking agent on the foreground and deer, and painted in a loose background. The masking was then removed, and I painted a light wash of raw sienna in the shadowed areas of the animals. My process is one of applying layers of pigment glazes to achieve rich colors and depth.
I've never painted deer as the main focus of a piece. Challenging, but exciting!
