I’m not a watercolorist but I like to watercolor.
I’d rather sketch my surroundings (if I happen to see a fruit or vegetable, great) and would not have sat down to make any of these still-lifes, but my wife requested them for a group class project. They’re rebranding Trader Joe’s, coming up with original brands for the store, and these watercolors are being incorporated into a baby food product.
Whenever I paint with watercolors I limit myself to Prang’s pan set of 8 colors. Limiting choices helps me stretch my rudimentary knowledge in color theory.
I painted most of these while watching the 49ers beat the Seahawks. If making watercolors while watching helps improve their win column then I’ll be making more next week.
Is it a still-life if you used Google Images?
