Just Before Sunset Watercolor Demo – Step 4

I see the fabric as fluid, abstract shapes. Following the guidelines of the pencil sketch and value ranges from the reference photo, sections are painted using ultramarine violet, new gamboge and cadmium orange.

I’m leaving some of the initial wash to keep the lightest values and symbolize light. They also serve to lead the eye throughout the painting, creating a subtle rhythm and movement, like background music.

The real voyage of discovery consists

 Not in seeking new lands

 But in seeing with new eyes.

 – Marcel Proust
