An Italian landscape

Watercolour, watercolour, watercolour. That's what's absorbing all my time in the painting room at the moment. After acquiring – some – understanding of different techniques and possibilities in watercolour painting I just can't seem to get enough. I like the way the water makes the colours blend.

Into the city

I'm getting in a lot of watercolour time at the moment, which I really enjoy as I do feel there's some progress in my painting. So this one is another tutorial based painting, made from a video by Tim Wilmot. The scene is from the South of France, I think, with some brick buildings, a…

Just standing in the snow

This is the result of a quick, digital watercolour session last night. I didn't know what to paint, so I just startet with the blue background to get some kind of start.
