Okay, internet, I’m torn. I’m working on a piece for my mom’s guest bedroom, and I did a little watercolor study to figure out what I was going to do. I loved the study, but I’m just not sure about the completed painting itself. I’m not sure I’m liking the style and may totally change it to be thick, impasto paint instead of the wash I have right now. Anyway, thought you might enjoy seeing the step-by-step. Would love feedback on whether the wash works or if I should completely cover it with nice, thick paint and eliminate the outline.
