This is another sketch regarding what I'm thinking about doing with a watercolor 11 x 14 on Arches #140 cold-pressed paper.
You'll see here a drastic difference in the colors from the first post. The reason is the paper, the first is on moleskine paper (I really like the way the thick moleskine paper handles watercolors); this is #110, acid free white paper, in a Robert Bateman, sketch book. It doesn't really like watercolor at all. Also, this one is pencil and watercolors only, whereas the moleskine below is ink and watercolors.
I think I like the pots and flowers better on this one, but the foreground and background on the other better.
I want to use complementary colors to hopefully get the pots to pop off the page. I'm not sure how to handle the back/foreground, but I'm thinking about using different color schemes in a sort of non-representational style, something like the one below.
