Yes, I still love watercolor! That last exercise to loosen up got me going! I am doing a full sheet landscape from a photo I took at Monterey, California. I am working from top to bottom. I used liquid mask for the clouds (removed now) and the ocean foam in the lower right corner (still on - it is orange colored mask).
The trees were fun to do. Very loose, flicking movements with a pointed round brush. The rocks I am doing with a flat brush. I am just beginning to put in the orange and red colors of the iceplant flowing down the rocky coast. When I am done with that color and it is dry, I will put in the greens of the iceplant. I didn't want the green and red to mix and make muddy brown.
I still have more rocks to put in on the lower half of the painting.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
