Hello! Do you know we have already finished the SNAILS‘ week of the Tiny Spring?! So fast, for me days are extremely short! But… there is no time for this. Some announcement about new week, which starts today – week’s theme is YOUNG.
I present last miniature of snails and new one of YOUNG’s is drying now! I didn’t change composition or cropping. Pretty difficult part was to make this main leave – watercolors are specific – when you start with darker color you can’t take it back, so simply you work from light to dark. Any overpainting can be made only with other mediums, but it’s cheating!! I use only opaque with gouache as the final touch of the most lighted areas and this is it. No more cheating :) Few words about this snail: my inspiration for it appeared as a pearl during scouring on Instagram. The composition, colors and idea was totally different from all other shots yesterday. The author is Valerio (on Instagram as: valeriomereu). Thank you very much! :)
