Hey, Pear!

Late at night I had an idea involving fruit. I think it might be funny!


Ok, so after years of sort of aimlessly messing around I am trying to get hip to watercolor in a more serious way. I have swapped out all the semi-opaques and opaque colours in my palette for transparent ones, and I'm finding the results a lot more luminous! This was a gift for a friend and my first painting with the new colours. If you have any watercolor tips or tricks, send them my way why don't you!

I know you must be growing tired of these kinds of questions, but how on earth am I meant to get a watercolour to look good on the computer?! Scanning seems pretty hit or miss, and then even when I save for web all the colours look muddy once I get the image into my browser. Why why why? Help me, internet!
