Grasses 11x15 2011
I've been working on painting grasses with a watercolor look to them. Either they come out looking like patchwork, or like little sticks, or are way overworked. I love negative painting and wanted to get some of the sparkle of leaving the white. I also don't use any masking. This painting is starting to come close to what I'm trying to accomplish. A note. The photo is not great. The light green background grass came out as white. The lavender in the grass looks garish. It's actually much paler. With all that said, I'm pleased with the grass.
