Anticipating Spring in January

"Anticipating Spring in January" • Original watercolor and gouache on 100% cotton paper • 11" x 15"
I wanted to paint with purples and greens and wisteria is perfect for those colors! I started with a really loose wash, used saran wrap for texture and let everything dry. I added the darker shapes, lifted a bit for more lights and the last step was tinted gouache to create holes in the leaf patterns and lighten the bottom.
