Here are a couple more exercises, from the Watercolor Workbook by Anne Elsworth, designed to improve your brush skills.
I’m going to warn you that most of my art done the last couple of weeks has been done in very low lighting. My bleedthrumanades aren’t much affected because I did the color a while back, but I definitely see it affecting my watercolors. Still, I’m learning and the exercise helped relieve some of the stress surrounding my husband’s problems.
And, maybe, my apples look more like gourds than apples because I DO need more practice with my brush skills, lol!
