100 Watercolors #11: Memory


This week's theme is Memory.  Even though this image is kind of sad, I still had a really fun time painting it.  One of the watercolor tips Claire gave me is that if you're filling in a big area (like the blue sky background here) you should wet the area down first with clean water.  That way it's easier to spread the color around and mix it with other colors while it's still wet.  I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, though I think I overworked the tree a little bit.  Live and learn!

Next week's theme: Insanity!
