First completed version of flowers in blue pottery jugs done in wet-in-wet watercolour technique on well soaked paper.
Watercolour on Paper
56cm x 76cm
This painting was done on completely wet paper, giving very soft blurry shapes at first, then gradually, as paper dried, adding more defined detail. This helps to fade out background objects, so the two jugs contrast in focus depth. The trickiest bit maybe was getting the orange streaks in the blue iris blooms.
