Q&A with Eduardo Hernandez

Mercgal asked:

Eduardo Hernandez answered:
Thank you so much!
Mary P. Murphy asked:
Very nice, Eduardo -- I can feel the sun in this painting; you're off to a rousing start. A couple of suggestions for next time -- see if you can vary the flowers a little, so some move back and some move forward -- this will help you determine where your focus is also, which should be the area of greatest contrast in color and/or value. It looks like you've painted before, no? I love you're treatment of the background and your sense of light. Way to go.
Eduardo Hernandez answered:
Dear Mary, thank you for your very sound advice. I did try to orient some of the flowers differently, but tes, their treatment is fairly homogeneous and some variety would give it more liveliness, I'm sure. And, yes, I have painted before, on and off, but not many flower portraits, as I like to think of them. I will try to post some more soon. Thanks for a great course!
Cort Rut asked:
Stunning! That color blue is my favorite and I love the muted background.
Eduardo Hernandez answered:
Thank you! I am always fearful of how the background will come out, but watercolour does its own magic in spite of my best attempts to spoil it ;-)
