Got my box out on a rainy day
Well whatever you are doing, it is most certainly showing in your work, a beautiful painting S, well done.
Beautiful paintings Seymour - lovely to see you posting paintings again :)
this is an experiment - I have had it in a corner for over a year- it's watercolour on Arches paper;
1st conclusion from experiment- DON'T USE ARCHES! It doesn't dry quickly and the surface can go mushy especially if you add a bit of gouache Titanium white - I'll stick with Fabriano in future;
the bird is about 15cms long on the painting; the paper is Fabriano artistico 14x11 inches.
I work wet to dry.
see my Kiskadee post for more details
And it looks like you are doing wet on dry would this be best to start off with?
I have just been upstairs and looked in a drawer my late wife used and there are lots of drawing, painting and other stuff that don’t look like they have been out of the box’s.
So I might give this water colouring a go seeing I have everything, what I would like to know is what size of paper are you using S, I have a paper cutter so that’s no problem and I would be doing them in portrait like you have.
Lovely artwork S, I think you have convinced me dust off my set of watercolours to do some line and wash later on in the day.
Excellent way to chill.
Very nice painting S.
Blimey. I hope it went well.
Beautiful yellowhammer, by the way!
Here's a yellowhammer - had to chill out after a medical procedure today
