April demo at the gallery

finished painting with pastel
watercolor underpainting for demo
This is for all of the folks who attended my demonstration on April 11th. Thank you! This painting was done completely from memory. The bottom photo is what the attendees saw and the top is the finished piece.
Tip- The most important thing to remember when doing a watercolor underpainting is to try to get your values correct. If you don't the watercolor will need to be covered in order for the painting to read correctly.

That's absolutely gorgeous! The pastels over the watercolor create such a shimmering atmosphere.
