After getting my watercolor moleskine in the mail, I set out to do some plein air painting in gouache yesterday. Although considering I started at about 7:3- pm, I was losing light pretty fast.
When I stepped outside my house to see what I wanted to paint, I saw a fire hydrant by my house being lit by the sunlight. It caused a really cool highlight on the fire hydrant so I instantly wanted to paint it.
I ran into trouble with the highlight as it didn't achieve the effect I wanted. I wanted it to be extremely bright but I couldn't quite get it.
