This is a second attempt at watercolors. Original size of paper was A2 and the theme was 'apple' with no refs so they end up looking kinda abstract. Which is your favourite?
I must say I learned a lot about controlling the water flow, which is never easy since the colors tend to bleed and create fugly smears and water stains. It's still not very good, but I hope to improve with time.
Time taken: Around 3 hours.
Tools: Cold-pressed watercolor paper, Mantegna Water Colors, color contrast tweaked in PS.
Oh, btw art school rocks.
