Mis?Adventures in Watercolor-I Do Love My Coffee


I can’t decide if this is finished or not, but I’m worried I’ll overdo it, so I’m quitting for now.

This is a 16×20 Arches Watercolor Artboard.  The background was done with the Saran Wrap method.
It started as a Triad, but I just couldn’t get the greens or the light that I wanted until I added yellow. I ended up using about 8 different colors.

  1. I love, love, LOVE that background effect. This is your best yet. I can't believe the transformations that have taken place as you continue to work with watercolors. This is one of the most beautiful watercolors I've seen. So glad you've included us in your journey. Bravo! and Encore!
