view from the ridge

A couple of small watercolors, done at home.
Trying to heighten color, think of warm and cool, and values. It's a lot! 
In class, Susan Abbott suggested we de-saturate photos of our paintings to more clearly see the value structure.
Can't believe I wasn't doing this!

It's also helpful to desaturate reference photos to better see where they do and don't work.

And now, another farm cat!

An excellent idea.

Thanks, Candy. It really is useful. For some reason I never think of technology!
