Garda 2 Watercolour

Garda 2 Watercolour

You've certainly beefed up the shadows in this one and it works to make the sunlight look a lot stronger, which I am presuming was your intention. Looks great now.

Many thanks Thea, I think I learned something from this one. I initially painted the shadow areas too pale and then over painted, getting the correct tone but making it a little muddy. must remember to test the strength of the washes before painting?

Looks pretty darn good to me - also liked the previous one.

Many thanks Michael, I must practice this style more.

Very nicely done, Stephen. The light and shadowed contrast is very effective.

Joining my voice to previous comments, very nice

Many thanks. Jacques.

Hang on Studio Wall

had another go at this, this time using watercolour and a hake brush, tried to get strong tones in it.

Stephen Slater

I am a self taught amateur painter, I mostly paint landscapes in watercolour but I 'dabble' in other mediums from time to time. I really enjoy my art, especially painting outdoors when the weather allows.
