Judy Patti, my former watercolor teacher, used to say that every picture goes through an ugly period. I am not sure if I'm quite out of it with this one, but it is better.

Pillows is the colored pencil painting I am working on to enter in a competion. I am still adjusting colors and blending, but I have not decided what to do with the background. I put it in Photoshop and came up with a possible graded aqua blue (on top) to a cream yellow on bottom. Do you have any suggestions?

The walk: We had been to breakfast and were walking from the cafe to the Metro station to head downtown LA. It was a beautiful morning with the sun bright and casting strong shadows.

The painting: transparent watercolor
After I laid in the beginning colors, I knew I needed to changes Zane's jacket color. I put the picture in Photoshop and experimented with colors. I ended up with this green. Kristin was wearing a black leather jacket and I had a lot of work to do on it.
Experimenting with color in Photoshop.

Beginning layers of paint. A long way to go.
