I've made another attempt to get back into watercolor by using the same photo of strawberries I used in oil for the food show at the gallery. I ordered three books edited by Betty Lou and studied the techniques others use. At one point this painting had some watercolor appeal, but I overworked it until the spontaniety was completely gone. It's a pleasing enough image, but not what I was looking for.
I may keep trying with this same image and see if I can get my old skills back.
