I have taken a photograph of the first still life in the series, altered it in Photoshop Elements, printed it out onto watercolour paper, and then re-worked it. The photograph has come out a little bright.
I find this is a quick way to experiment with a painting, and if I find I really like the result, I will then go on and actually paint it on board.

I have also taken another photograph of yesterday's painting. The colours are more accurate now but it is a little brighter than the photograph shows, but if I alter the brightness, the colours are not true. I think it maybe because there is a lot of scumbling one colour over another.

I am enjoying this series, or sequence of paintings, and will be doing more in March.
