For this we did water color on a fruit of our choosing. We had to pain them in different colors schemes. The top apple was done in cool while the middle ones were done in warm and triadic schemes. The last one was monochromatic which meant I had to use different values to make that apple. I mostly experiment with different ways of applying shades of color and I realize that more water might have been better. Another thing I was struggling to do was keep it wet so I could prevent splotches from appearing in the piece. Lastly, I think the shadow and highlights in water color are easy to make as long as you know where the point of light is coming from.
for this picture we had to learn the different techniques with water color paint. Some of them were simple dry brushes combined with wet paper or vice versa. Others involved the manipulation of paint to create different values. The most interesting of all was the addition of different substances in order to create texture such a as salt or Saran Wrap. Over all these techniques I especially liked the Saran Wrap
