By The Lake Watercolor

bythelakescaled

This one took me all night to do. The strange thing is, I’m not sure how I did it. I sat down and started painting. I was watching a tv series online and kept getting up to paint..watch some more..paint some more etc. I like this one but I never know what to do with grass or a large grassy area to make it interesting. Any ideas? Anyway, hope you likey šŸ™‚

Secret Streamlet Watercolor

secretstreamletscaled

I’m very pleased with this one. I could probably give the mountain and stream a little more shape but other than that, I actually like it. I worked very hard at not being concerned about where objects started and stopped. I kept telling myself that it’s ok for a shoreline NOT to be defined but instead, let it bleed into the stream. I had toĀ convince myself that a mountain or cliff does NOT have to always be brown even though it goes against every fibre of my being. Even painting a tree that’s leaning is extremely vexing for me because I have to have everything even and straight and the correct color. I have to actually work at being free and loose. Must be my personality type or something.

What say ye?

Forgotten Island Watercolor

I got this composition from The Mind of Watercolor on YouTube. I kind of followed his video but did my own thing too. After watching it a million times, this is what happened above. šŸ™‚

As always, critiques and criticisms are encouraged. As for my own critique, I wish I could make sand more interesting. Also, learn how to paint other kinds of rocks – all of mine are basically the same.

Spirit of Lark Rise Watercolor

This painting captures the spirit of a made up place in theĀ poverty-stricken people and sense of community in Lark Rise. Their physical world is much different but this painting reflects the noble character of its’ residents.
