Annette No. 3 4"x6" / by VH McKenzie






This is a 4"x6" watercolor -- I scanned the painting in stages, beginning with the ink line drawing  since I wasn't sure what direction I was going to go in terms of color. I tried something a little different from the saturated jewel tones I usually use. But after the first set of washes (middle pic) I decided to make the colors a bit richer, and brought up the contrast. I could have tinkered with this forever, but then risked it becoming muddy and overworked so -- c'est fini.
