3/11/Intermediate Watercolor Homework, Not Yet!

 I promised we'd continue inventing wet on wet dwellings for homework this week, so here we are. I wonder, though, if anyone can come up with a way to paint some still lives where the paint is free to flow wherever it wants. Mangos, for example...

Meanwhile, can you picture this house before the walls and windows were made visible by stamping the edges of the shapes with a credit card? Some of the shapes ran together, making suggestions of three dimensions. Some of the straight lines are colors other than black. Can you get an interesting mark with lots of paint on the card. Do you have a spray bottle? You may be tempted to outline every shape. I recommend giving the paint a chance to mingle before you tame it.

Most of these neutral shapes came from scraping with a card.

Have fun!
