More Cherries…

Ripe Cherries 2 (Watercolour Sketch)

Ripe Cherries 2 (Watercolour Sketch)

After feeling dissatisfied with yesterday’s attempt at cherries I decided to try them again today as a warm up, before painting another wash on the picture of Flint… before I began I’d been reading about using glazing washes to maintain the radiance of your washes so I thought I’d give it a go.

This has turned out very differently to yesterday’s painting, it is much clearer and brighter but I feel it’s also less spontaneous and alive. In my opinion it looks much more contrived than my first attempt and as a result I think I prefer the first one, with all it’s faults 🙂
