Peaks and Shallows


I did this study with watercolor at Lake Osceola on the campus of the University of Miami. The greatest challenge was to work around the white highlights in the beginning, as proper watercolor dictates that one should not use white paint afterwards. I layered values of blue, working from low opacity to high opacity to build the forms of the ripples. This exercise gave me good insight into how to use different amounts of water to make strokes of different values.
