Adventures In Watercolor 3

So here is the next batch of my watercolors. After tackling flowers and still life, we were on to landscapes, which I prefer, because it doesn’t require drawing precise shapes. We started with monochromatic landscapes first:

Then we moved on to full color:

Stay tuned, because it’s our “graduation ceremony” this weekend and I’ll get to pick up my final piece to show you guys. And I’ve been painting regularly (now that school has started again, I try to complete one painting per week) so there will be more to come!

    I am so proud of you, Salazar. These paintings are excellent!! You’ve really come a long way with your art. I may have to ask you for some tips on how to paint certain things later. I struggle with mountains and trees. I love how you did yours, especially in the snowy scene you did.
    Do you name your paintings?

    Keep up the great work! Maybe in the future, we can sometimes feature each others’ works on our respective blogs. 😉

    I’ve really enjoyed seeing your paintings develop, Salazar. You’ve made great progress so quickly, and I hope that you continue with your plan to keep painting regularly.

    I wish that there was a similar class like this where I live in the UK because I too could do with the motivation to practise and learn new techniques – I’m too much of a perfectionist and always get frustrated about wasting the paper when things don’t come out right!

      Thank you, Helen! I’m sure there are classes you can find around your area or even online, and if not, you can still just practice on your own. I’ve wasted quite a bit of paper since I’ve started as well, but that’s the point of practicing, isn’t it?

        That’s pretty much what I’ve done; practice on my own and watching other artists. It’s the best way to develop your own craft and style!
