Beginning New Watercolor
I have completed a drawing to start a new watercolor and I am stumped about what to do. First let me explain. I have been asked to test a new watercolor coming out on the market called QOR and it is pronounced CORE...I think. Anyway, I was wondering if I should paint this with the new colors and then I think but I love this drawing and I want to do it with watercolors I know and understand and not test something on this and then not like it after all the work of drawing! So that is why I am stumped. We will see which way I will lean. I will post the drawing. It was put in adobe to try to make the pencil lines stand out so it might look very dark and let me assure you it is not dark. And my head shadow is in there. ha! Sorry about that. It is a group of metal welded fish with spines all over them. I am really excited to get painting on it and so am not sure which way to go as I really like the drawing and want this to turn out. We will see. I will post the drawing and also the color swatches I did of the new paints. I have them in the window now and will leave them there for a month in the sun to see if there is any fading.
