Day 308: Paddle Plant, Pt. 3

Paddle Plant (Watercolour)

Paddle Plant (Watercolour)

I would love to see this piece finished now, it seems like leaves just keep growing while I’m not looking! You can barely tell I’ve painted another section of them today.

I’ve also made a start on adding a background – I thought long and hard what to do, which colours to use, and then finally went with what was originally there – a hedge of greenery. I quite like how it’s shaping up, and deliberately dropped some water in here and there while it was still damp to create cauliflowers for some variation and texture.
