Photographer: Miles Herbert
Hi there everyone
Rank beginner here who has been lurking for about a month while messing about with pen and watercolour sketches. This is the first time Iím trying to work without the pen, and I feel like itís missing something. Is it deeper shadows? More layers of colour? It just doesnít look complete to me and any tips or suggestions would be gratefully received.
The photo actually makes it look better than in real life. Thereís not really as much delineation of the petals, especially the inner edges of the two main petals.
Paint: koi pocket sketching box (Iím not sure of the quality but for the price Iím assuming itís on the school/student side)
Paper: Derivan cold press 350gsm
Size: 20x14 cm
Obviously Iíve not followed the colours on the reference photo 100%.
Many thanks for looking.
