Watercolor

Although I usually work in dry media, I definitely enjoy dabbling in watercolor. It's relatively new to me and I don't feel confident yet, but I'm having fun playing with it. This is a still life on cold-press paper.

Mainly flat washes so far, just getting in the basic shadows and some texture on the book.

Detailed the spoons and cup, started to attack the drapery a bit.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with this painting. I really like how the book and the cup/spoons turned out, I'm just not 100% on the drapery... the only part I really struggled with was the upper right-hand corner.
