I was painting a perfectly ripe, wonderfully colored peach….and it wasn’t going so well. Hub to the rescue! He brought these in, and they immediately caught my eye. Peach overboard! 😀
As my newest painting idol, Charles Reid says, we can’t copy nature. We can only interpret and suggest. I love how he worded that! And I find it to be true. Here’s my attempt, complete with splatter (I could get hooked on that):
Kinda….meh. I think they were a little too crowded in there, but I didn’t wanna change one thing about them. But now I’m wondering if these quick watercolor sketches are useful to do daily. Should I work on a bigger project? Not sure I’m ready for that. I’d welcome your thoughts!
Happy Independence Day! Have a safe and happy one. Peace.
