I have had the privilege of rethinking a watercolor -- and added a secondary blue wash the other day. This voluminous wash added a bit of depth and mystery to the whole painting. The leaves and stems needed to be muted... and the atmosphere created by the blossoms made the whole painting wet!
I like it much better-- and consider it 'done' now.
I went ahead and tweaked various edges.. lifting and high lightening.. then softening some of the washes.
In the end.... the monumentality and light shine through!
