Months, if not years of soft pastels and acrylics (not to mention abstracts, but that's another story) have spoilt my feel for the immediacy and delicacy of watercolour paints.
Soon I will try a reasonable sized painting and see just how it works out, I am almost frightened of committing at the moment, hence all this playing around with small and loose sketches.
But it is beginning to feel right, once more - see what you think:-
A snow scene (#2).
A very simple application of washes
with the trees, etc, adding detail.
A Stormy Sky
I saw a version of this painting in a magazine tutorial and
decided to try and get the feeling of an overcast sky in a
snow setting. I think it has worked quite well.
I would love to hear any criticisms of my watercolours, I hope those reading the blog are interested in what I am doing at the moment.
