"What's Wrong with This Picture?????"

I am having trouble with this. Yellows are notoriously difficult to get credible shadows. I am stumped as to how to make this look better. The only thought I have is to put in an extremely dark background, something I originally wanted to avoid. Hm ...  any ideas???

This was one of the demos I started in class last week. One of the new students [and her husband] have become fascinated with watercolor - YES - and would like to continue with this next Saturday. So ... more lobster ...

I used the idea from this painting I did a few years ago. Yup, there really are yellow lobsters, though they are extremely rare.

This was another class demo. It makes me want to be in Venice again, so I could take photos and draw and paint to my heart's content!!!

Took the dogs out for an early morning walk. Little did they know that it was actually a photo shoot :)

This was one of the images I took. Some of the students want to try poured watercolor, so I headed out today to get some photos with strong value contrasts. 

This is a close-up of the shed from the above photo. It is full of antique farming equipment.

That's about it for now. I'd like to get out early to play with His Lordship before it gets too hot ...

Thank you so much for dropping by!
