Original Watercolor by Michele Cooper
Size: 5x7" Price: $75 (with mat and sleeve)
Here's the corrected painting after I fixed my demonstration from this morning.
As you can see below, I removed a lot of the dead, overworked paint in the background trees. I lifted the dry previously painted area with a clean damp brush, gently scrubbing until enough was removed.
Once it dried, I reapplied softer, more varied middle tones and better tree shapes. I still wanted the contrast of the darker background against the white of the lighthouse, but with more atmospheric edges.
