Shaggy Mane Mushroom in Color #67


For the quick field sketch of this mushroom be sure to see the previous post, "Shaggy Mane Mushroom #66." After skeching this on location in black and white, I came home and painted a more careful one with watercolors. The little bit of red on the strawberry leaves that are just turning color really threw the painting off until I just let a little of a similar red bleed into the ground over at the left. Sometimes it is important to look at what a painting needs, not only at what we saw if we are painting something from life.
