#5 and #6 Paintings- Dora Sislian Themelis

 Dark Apple, 8x12 Watercolor
 Dark Apple in the Afternoon, 8x12 Watercolor
This week I'm offering two watercolor paintings to the challenge. I switched paint companies and used MamieriBlu watercolor paints for these pieces of work. Previously, I was painting with a small travel watercolor set of Windsor&Newton paints, which I was very happy using. However, I'm running out of paint! In my large palette I have plenty of new paints, but the colors are different and not what I'm used to. I did my best though. After finishing the first painting I decided to keep the same objects except to change their direction and turn the apple to the more pleasing side! Playing with the paints, the water load, and difference in color tones kept me going. Once I finish up these paints it's back to W&N for me.

...Dora, I like the blue showing through on the apple...and the turquoise showing in the shadows. I like the colors!
