Day 43 - Student Show at Art Center

Today I worked on adding a few of what Jo Myers-Walker calls "dark notes" to a couple of watercolors I plan to include in the student show.  These were early attempts so I will tell you what I have learned since taking these classes and how I would change them.
Floral Arrangement from Sarah's Garden

Multi-colored background distracts from the arrangement.  From Iain Stewart I learned the secret of the wash using the bead and inclined paper.  So for sure I would make that less blobby and more a graduated wash.

Melinda's Toy Collection
Too much a colored-in drawing.  More variation in value and some lost edges would make this more interesting.  Once again the background is competing too much for attention.
