Watercolor on 12 x18" Fabriano paper. I wanted a rustic chicago bar feeling, so I mixed burnt umber, rose madder, and purline (I sometimes mix viridian and alizarin to get variations of purline. I'm happy with the piece so far. My next step is to glaze some cool greens to differintiate foreground, mid, and background. When I started, I wasn't sure if I was able to pull of a watercolor illustration since I wasn't able to afford the class and skipped Illustration 2 and went straight into Adv. Perspective, but watercolor is surprisingly forgiving. It's properties are similar to watered down gouache. And given the right brushes, I can lift the paint back to the white of the paper.
