This is my umpteenth time trying to learn watercolors. Still not sure which is the challeng. Using a brush or getting the water part right…or both. This is version from a YouTube tutorial by Kolbie Blume.
Yes 140 lb cold press. It is a Strathmore Art Journal. 8x5.5inches.Nice! I'd be tickled if that were mine - I'm afraid of watercolors and awkward with brushes, so it's not my medium.
You did well. I like texture from what looks like cold pressed paper here. It adds a nice dimension.
Exactly Joan. Twice, once while still damp so those soften to a glow then again when completely dried. Tried practicing the techniques again today but ‘duh’ painted in trees before splattering the second time.Well the umpteenth time obviously worked, Joe. Love that varied sky and the darks of the trees. Did you use white gouache for the stars? I love it!
