Another boat on another sea

After a few painting motifs on land, I needed to get back to the marine life again. More specific, some boats on water at the harbour. This one is actually drawn and painted from pure imagination, which makes the process much more fun. I didn't take any pictures of the sketch or wash, but this…

Almost there..

Recently, I decided to try to paint a photo we took during travels in Vientiane, Laos in 2015. We took the photo while walking along the promenade, and it looks like this: What made me want to paint it are all the sharp edges and angles of the buildings, and the way the shadows move…

After a very disappointing session last time, I wanted to get right back at watercolour painting to try to change that unpleasant feeling. After a closer look at the process of my last painting, I had some main areas I wanted to improve in this new session. Don't be too exact with the sketch, and…
