Watercolor Underpainting, Day 3

Whew!  The head is still spinning with thoughts of notan, simultaneous contrast, aerial perspective, refraction, fulcrum balance, center of interest zones, focal points, and value, value, value.  I'm looking forward to it all becoming second nature, and simply being able to watch the painting unfold effortlessly as we did when observing Richard's demos.  I'm most grateful for the wisdom shared by Richard and the beautiful locations arranged by Libby--particularly Hillsborough Vineyards and the lovely rolling hills of 'the farm.'
