Pickled Ginger

Pickled Ginger, 5.5x8.5" watercolor, ©Diane Mannion

Day 4 of 30/30

Took my time with this one and used layers of glazing.  Background was done in one, wet into wet layer inside each area.  The objects worked wet into dry, then dropped or pulled out beads of color.  Used dabs of masking medium for a few highlights, then softened some of those edges.  Kept palette simple, used ultramarine blue and burnt sienna mix for background.  Pushed values.

 Background worked first over light pencil drawing.
 Worked each object.
