Half a Pepper Watercolor 6x8

Just for fun I played with watercolors yesterday. I did some cropping on this piece because I think it's stronger that way and the cropping shows the color details. The magical look of watercolor comes from the way the white paper shows through the paint.

I Mary!! When I first saw your pepper I thought 'Wow!' I really love it. I love the vibrant color. I have a question for you. I put it on my blog. Please come over for a visit!

Mary, do you scan your work or photograph it digitally? I'm curious as the painting has a dark cast to it on my computer.

I love the way you used colour here.

If you don't mind, I'm going to create a link to your site. It will make it easier to visit.

Mary, I admire the looseness, the fresh juicy color and the translucence! Well done.

This is great! The color, looseness, flowy look.
