Jade plant in the window

Beautiful! Thank you for this.

jade plant watercolor

For today’s watercolor sketch I decided on part of a jade plant in the window using the following approach:

 1. I lightly sketched in the large shapes with the side of the pencil.

Then, in general, I used the watercolor as colors caught my eye:

2. the dramatic bits of yellow and yellow/green 3. general greens. 4. the blue sky 5. cool dark blues, added them in shadow areas and also drew with the paint, finding a few contours. 6. dramatic reds and oranges along with more yellow, found a few moments of purple shadow. 7. Used the pencil again, this time with the point to define shapes and shade in a few areas.
