A Vase for June Flowers

A Vase for June Flowers

A Vase for June Flowers

Today’s sketch is a variant of yesterday’s. It is a sketch of the same bouquet but with some of the leaves removed. This time I wanted to make the vase more transparent and used highly diluted paint for most of it, leaving some more opaque portions for contrast.

I also continued painting without first making a drawing and felt much more comfortable with the process. It is interesting that the diluted paint dries with an edge that resembles a line.

This is a gouache sketch on Derwent black paper.
