La Connor Baskets

Susan Ogilvie took our class to a pumpkin farm for a plein air class last fall and I was drawn to all the shapes and styles of baskets in the storage shed.

I always enjoy laying in the initial wet in wet washes - it's the 'secret' really to glowing watercolor paintings.

More definition, more darks and mid values.

I added just a few strokes of white colored pencil to regain the light on th basket edges.
