Same Town Branch bourbon bottle, different color scheme. This time the color scheme is analogous complements.
The dominant color is yellow/orange. The analogous complements are blue, blue/purple and purple. I started with a simple shape/value pencil sketch.
The painting became murky along the way. The sketchbook paper is extremely thin and doesn’t accept watercolor easily. I became side-tracked by the paper and lost sight of my basic shapes and values. To pull it back I strengthened the mix of paint in the dark shapes and added a bit of white gouache to try pulling back some light shapes. Though muddy, the composition is stronger than it was when I wandered too far from my little pencil sketch.
As promised, I will post the Game Rules soon. Top priority today is to do my taxes…… grrrrrrrr.
Sketchbook painting: drawn first with Carbon Pencil followed by too many layers of watercolor and gouache.
