Adventures In Watercolor 4Posted: September 19, 2018
As promised, here is my final piece from my watercolor class:
For our finals, we had to pick a photo (NOT a painting!) and reproduce it on 18 x 24 paper. Mine was based on this photo of the Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland. As you may have noticed from my previous paintings, trees are kinda my specialty, so this seemed like a good choice. I’m pretty satisfied with the end result; I only wish it could look more transparent, more like a watercolor painting – here, I added so many layers that it looks more like a gouache/acrylic piece. I guess I just need to practice more…
And here are some more paintings that I’ve been working on since the class ended:
There is still a lot I need to learn though, so once my schedule slows down a bit, I’m going to see if there is another class I can take.
