Kitties at the beach for Watercolor Wednesdays

This week for Watercolor Wednesdays, I used a technique that I’ve never tried before, glazing. For those who don’t know, glazing is where you build up thin layers of color instead of just laying down one color from the beginning (which is what I usually do). It was fun, but frustrating to wait for layers to dry, and of course I cheated a few times and painted before a layer was completely dry (I couldn’t help myself).

Here it is; the original is a bit brighter. What do you think?

Next time I try glazing, I’m going to try mixing more colors through layering.
