transparent watercolor

I did the painting as a demo for my adult watercolor students.  We started with an under-painting, then negatively painted the grapes and then the leaves.  Then we pushed and added more darks.

This is the last nozzle bottle painting, although I have had a few more ideas.  Rogue Night  was also done with black gouche and watercolor. Thanks to my friend Sam,  I think she picked a  name fits him.

This another nozzle bottle painting on Arches 140# cold press paper.  I used black gouche in the bottle and took a brush loaded with water and spread the black in places.  I used transparent watercolor for the background and the eye.Very different from the earlier ones.
