Tonal Values in Watercolour

Tonal Values in Watercolour

I don't often see watercolour used like this John - mainly graphite. Looks really good. Why a spanner???

Thank you Adele, well the spanner get your attention. To study in tonal values. Which artist should understand that’s if he/she wants to make convincing iece of art.

Love your composition in black and white 😃

That bottle is convincing John. great. Should have used this as a challenge!

Great drawing skills John, I do like the spanner as well.

Thank you Linda,Peter, and Alan. It’s watercolour Alan.

I love this, beautifully done. I often 'draw' with a watercolour brush, but don't get results like this. Great.

Quite refreshing to see a painting reduced to the basics. Beautifully and skilfully done John such a change from landscapes. I think I want to pick up that spanner and do something with it!

Thanks Willie, actually that spanner’ is used to adjust the lawn mower.

Good study John, yes, the bottle is very convincing.

Beautiful and accurate still life , tonally perfect I think .

Thank you Marjorie and Dennis. Your feedback is very much appreciated.

What are tonalist with great draughtman skills

This is incredibly good John, I should practice this kind of study.

Well it certainly got my attention John - so job done!

Good drawing here John with equally good use of watercolour!

Thank you Fiona, Louise Adele, Maureen, Gudrun, your feedback is appreciated.

I would never have guessed this was watercolour John, the toning is superb. I love the spanner!
