Among the load I've taken onto the wagon, is a picture book story that involves bulbs... Needless to say, bulbs are a bitch to portray in watercolor - either you sacrifice the whole beauty of watercolor transparency, or you sacrifice some of the impression of the beady lines, reflecting light from one another in a dark room, shapes, sizes and tones all chattering amidst themselves.. If I try to do them the way they look in real world, they seem stiff.. If I do them too artistically, it feels like b*s.. One thing is for sure. Tranquil zen monk I am not.
