Birch Dryad

Ok, so I went ahead and did another one today. This one I like so much better. But, I had a major screw up that I couldn't fix. As a result the dryad turned out way too dark. She almost looks evil. So, the two major lessons that I have learned from the last two paintings:

  1. I do lots better when I work with small details at a time instead of large washes to cover large areas.
  2. I really don't like trying to reproduce someone else's work.
So what does that mean? It means my next watercolor piece is going to have lots of small details that I am going to work on and it is going to be an original, not copied. Oh, and I plan to do a WIP of it. So keep an eye out. I will try to post something tomorrow with at least some bits of pieces of ideas that I have for it.

Well, here it is, the Birch Dryad. This is another one of the lessons from the book that I mentioned in a previous post.
