Watercolour artichoke

Watercolour artichoke - student project

This is off a detailed coloured pencil drawing I did last year; needed to loosen up! I combined the watercolour project with the paper to screen project. recalibrating colour was a challenge; still pretty bright. But it was nice to see the difference between the wet piece, which I thought was a mess, and the dried piece, which I liked. I retouched a lot of the white spaces and hope my photoshopping is not obvious.

this is the original source, if curious. Ideally, I'd like to do another from the watercolour that simplifies it even more!!!
