These guys were hanging around our mantel for weeks and they were done. So I limited my palette to three colors and made two puddles for each color – a light and a dark (shadow) version. Then I loaded the brush, starting with light green and proceeded to put as much information on paper as I could in one pass, taking care not to backtrack anywhere. After that dried, I started again, this time with the darker hues, taking care to only cover the shadow areas. Two passes, one light and one dark, and I was finished. Watercolors on rough paper.
