Practice Painting - session 6
I've added a curled leaf to balance out the design a bit, and deepened the color in the berries and leaves. I wish I'd put more paint on the background because the canvas shows through too much and its going to be a pain to cover it.
I like the muted tones in this one, although it still needs more depth and a lot more tweaking. I guess that's why its my practice painting. By the way, for some reason this painting always comes out looking dirty and gray in the photographs, but in real life it is much more sky blue, very delicate looking.
Soon it will be time to give this baby a name. It reminds me somehow of Alice in Wonderland. Hmmm.
