Watercolor Sketches; Curtains & Contrasts

Last class we talked about contrasts.
Your homework was to use curtains (or similar motif) to augment contrast effects using as many of the following as possible:
tone vs hue, line vs wash, neutrals vs intense colors, detailed vs generalized, use of contrasting media within a single artwork, sharp vs fuzzy, cinnamon vs sugar?!;
Here are a couple quickies: 1. looking out my back window at the first cool day in a long time, and another example 2. looking into the hot oven at a the first pie in a long time. [click on the images to enlarge]

The fresh pears were from Betty Magnuson's tree--thanks for the inspiration and dessert, Betty! yum!
