The Fledgling Watercolorist Strikes Again!


On the Phone, 6"x4" watercolor on Canson wc block.

I really should practice this medium more. Terribly handy and seemingly more logical, to my mind anyways, than oil. I mean, since painting is built upon drawing, and drawing starts with lights and goes darker, I had to "learn backwards" for oil painting, putting darks first and building up to lights. I recall it through me a bit at first. But wc is more like drawing in that regard; you have to leave the lights and work in the darks. You'd think it would come more naturally to me. Maybe if, like I said, I practiced more.
This I reckon will be my second entry for the March Virtual Paintout. A screen cap of my Street View you can see in the previous post.

I like this. It sort of shimmers with an almost 'Med' light about it.

Ah nice, thanks CJ. S'posed to be Lithuania. Is that close enough?

It'll do just fine.

Hello A. Decker, alright!!
I liked the way it was seeking the last foreground of the photo, and transport for the main theme ......

A hug in friendship
