The Hammer

10" x 14" Watercolor - "The Hammer"

Hank Aaron was my hero growing up - Still the Homerun King in my opinion. Another limited palette approach. I used Ultramarine, Burnt Umber, and Cadmium Red. I tried the "pull technique" - which is laying in a medium to dark value and lifting the color out by wetting and blotting. Then I worked on the darks and lights adding detail.
