Watercolours: Week Two

I am love, love, loving this class. Today's work was about tones, and this is the exercise we did. It's a Lake District landscape, working from a black and white photograph.

I learned a lot about tones/gradations of color. Still fumbling with the painting of water. Wouldn't you think it would be easier to paint water with watercolour? For me, not so much!

Sus, it's beautiful!!! I love it! It has such a quiet, wintery feel to it.

Toni said...

Wow, I think it looks great!

Rosie said...

I feel as if I could walk straight into that landscape!

MLL said...

Wow, that is amazing! Are you really just learning how to paint?
I finally learned how to knit. I am terrible at it, but I'm still practicing....knitting a row or 2, perling a row or 2. My DH has said he will wear my "scarf" when I'm done but I'm thinking this first project will work better as a dog blanket.
