Same Scene - Different Technique!

"Mountain Shower"

This time, I did the spray bottle and splattering for the sky.  I did less manipulation and let the clouds form themselves.  I did some spray bottle and splatter and blowing for the land and trees.  It does give a fresher and looser look.  Now I will dig out my pastels and do a pastel version next go-around.

Hi, Carolyn!
You done very good work! Your clouds very live. It seems that the clouds are floating on us in our direction. And they float away, rising up over our heads!
I look forward to your pastels, Carolyn!!! :)))

Hi Ti-igra,
Thanks! I visited your blog. I'm sorry, I still don't know how to do the google translater once I'm there - to see what you have written. Did you change the portrait to make a yellow background by using the computer? Very interesting effect!

At first I chose a bright yellow paper and painted in pastel and pen portrait of Van Gogh. Scanned. My scanner did a wonderful thing. It scanned two versions with different twists. I decided that second picture a little change even in color. And it is easy to do if you have a program Photoshop. You choose Image/Adjustments/Photo Filter and there you may choose your color gamut as you want! :-)
I would be happy if it somehow will be useful for you!

I've never done anything like that with a scanner. But I do have photoshop now. Thanks for sharing your technique!

Hi, Carolyn!
I use a scanner because I have not photo camera :-) Sometimes it is very necessary when the picture is big. But if it not big it is very easy to use scanner. It reflects very well the graphics.
I very glad that story about the program become a useful for you!

Yesssssss, this is the kind of watercolor I like, when water makes its own job, and everything is soooo impredictible. Good work, C!
