The Vacation Waikiki Beach, Watercolor Process

This piece was painted with a direct wash using a round sable brush. 
Care must be taken in varying value and color for interest. 
Shapes are repeated and varied through out the design. 
When painting yellow use a nice mix of violet to lower the chroma, 
this way you will not make the color go green or yellow orange.
Blues in the towels are a variety of Cobalt Blue, Ultra Marine Blue, Cerulean and Cobalt Turquoise. Be sure to make one of the blue hues dominate.
A fun painting.
