Clementines with a cloche


I want to improve my working woth watercolor, since it isn't my best medium, and I'm all over the place with it, but the more I work with it, the more I enjoy it.
I tried this cloche/clementine set-up; The first one is going for an illustration look and the second more real watercolory. Neither one ended up very much of a success....I still struggle a lot with the amount of water on my brush, from there all the watermarks and backruns. But I am having fun. Will attempt another one later.... I've eaten the clementines.

I think they look great Ronell. The second one really expresses the transparency of the bell.

I think the way you use watercolours is amazing - so rich and loose! I can't see any room for improvement! :)
