Come Mr. Tally Man, Tally Me Banana....(7/19/2006)



I went on a ride with the kids tonight, got done with my preparation for a class that I teach once a week, and found myself with an hour to kill while the rest of the family watched an ol' Disney flick. I was hungry for bananas, and really enjoyed the way this one came out. I'm finding that using less lines, an economy of lines, together with various layers of color, really helps the painting stand out.

This is wonderful. Are you sketching first and then apply color with watercolor? Please share the process.
