Freshly finished on the 16th April 2020.
"Benjamin" pure watercolour on Saunders Waterford paper
with Winsor Newton paints
Sometimes our lives dictate what we can do or not do!
At the moment I am a full time carrer and find extremely difficult to be able to paint, Although when I find 10 minutes here and there, I try to relax with watercolour.
Here is my first watercolour painting 2020.
It is a commission.
"Rocky" - watercolour on paper Saunders Waterford
"Peonies Galore" has already received a good feedback. Now I cannot wait to create more watercolours!
Although I am working at the moment on a commission (Acrylic on canvas)
I am in the same time, creating watercolours.
I have a large one on the go but all will be revealed when it will be finished.
The other is a painting of peonies
I am working on Arches paper with
Sennelier and Winsor Newton paint
I am in the process to update my Tips!
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask...
I still have a few infos to add.
I worked quite well on the watercolour but got interrupted with the curating of the Exhibition for Grandmasters of Fine Art.
After working on the leaves, still discovering the wonderful greens of Rembrandt watercolours!
(Yes it is me saying that! Me who had never wanted to use Green colours from any range of watercolour paints!)
I. decided I wanted to lay the background so I could find out the values on the final layers of colours.
My problem was, being a large watercolour, the background was going to be large too.
I could not possibly interrupted while washing it.
Phone calls, door bell ringing was out of question.
Easter has come in our house as a bit of a disaster. My hubby has been unwell and slept a lot.
It also ment the family could not come!!!
So one afternoon, I decided to go for it. So now it is the background ALMOST done.
I am not totally happy with the top right corner. I will come back on it.
So More to come....
