Paint FLYING Everywhere!

I think you've seen the sketch ...

It looks like I am getting the hang of effective w/w washes. The colors are suitably lurid together - aureolin, quin. violet and cobalt blue.

I used the purply mixture to start shadowing the hose.

Reference photo, from one of my walks in the nearby woods.

This morning, I was looking at a sketch I did last night. It looked irresistible, so I made some minor adjustments, and put it on watercolor paper. 

Again, I've done a very w/w wash to start, using cobalt blue, quin. burnt orange and aureolin.

As ever, I love to read your comments. Please feel free to leave a note!

  1. The sky is spectacular! --And moss grows on the North side of the tree--and is taking over the grass around my patio. It feels great under bare feet. Happy painting and trekking in the woods Kathrine.

  5. I love that house! It's so spooooooky! And the sketch is lovely - don't you just love this time of year? All that beautiful moss creaping up the trees... I miss my woodland walks with Codi. I must bring myself to go again :0)
