Chile Wreath #2 in progress

Chile Wreath 2_in_progress_rachel_murphree_watercolorToday was a good painting day, now that I have my studio corner cleaned and organized.  Here is the second Chile Wreath painting but started before I’d worked out how to do the raffia top…and also a bit high up on the paper!  Sigh.  I will add upper lighter layers of the raffia in paler gouache once I’m satisfied with the chiles themselves, and figured out a background.  But for now, here is is.

  1. Dark tones in Chile Wreath created a nice depth! Turned out very well!
    I like your new studio set up! Specially the bureau drawers where you can everthing at one place!
