We had Sabrina back for a second session…though I don’t think you could ever recognize her looking back to last post – I just wasn’t getting a likeness last week. BUT! Tonight I remembered to concentrate more on the drawing – I know I can lay down the watercolor fairly fast – so I might as well take the time to get the drawing right.
And I’ve finally learned – it *really does* make a difference to put out fresh color. Somehow I was paying attention tonight – and I can report that paints really do more release color when they’re moist – and you can get a ‘milky’ paint that lays down sharper edges. If you re-wet old paint on the palette, it’s probably going to be too thin – too pale on the board.
