Detail - Pumpkin Patrol
Here is a detail on "Pumpkin Patrol" and an example of what is called negative painting. The light wash is applied first. When this wash is dry, a second darker wash is applied to sort of "carve" out shapes and values to present different shapes. It takes some practice and I'm still learning, but this is what makes watercolor so interesting and challenging!
