Back from tutorials

After what's been a good watercolour period using tutorial videos, I decided it was time to do one all by myself again. This time I had three specific tasks in mind: Choose a (quite) simple scene to paintDon't spend too much time doing detailsKeep the painting loose So I chose a photo we took in…

The first wet-in-wet

This is a painting based on a tutorial by Tim Wilmot. It's also my very first go at a wet-in-wet painting. This is how it ended up: Riverside village To sum up; it was a fun experience working with this technique. I also understand the experience you'll need to have to get all of the…

This is the watercolour paintings I've painted using tutorials: Boats at the beachA Venezia strollA stroll in the cityLoose cars in FranceA view from ItalyDried up boats Disappointing setback And these are…
