New Watercolor – Woody’s Diner

Symphony in Blue
New Watercolor – Symphony in Blue. The name came from a combination of suggestions from a couple of friends.
Watching from the Sidelines
I have held off on posting this painting. It was originally done at the request of someone that had purchased one of my other paintings. He wanted a painting of wood ducks and gave me a couple of rather bad reference photos. Basically told me just wanted it landscape and would leave the rest to my artistic style. Long story short, when I showed him the final result, he picked at it. “I wanted them in the water (uhm, they are) and further away from the edge. Uhmmm, I like them there and what happened to artist choice?
At any rate, lesson learned. No more commissions. Not worth it. I still like the painting and it deserves to be seen.
So I present “Watching From the Sidelines”
World Watercolor Month 2021
So, I am going to see how well I do on a painting every day in July. I figured the best way to do this is with a gallery once I have a second. So, here we go with World Watercolor Month for 2021.
Triangle Brushes and Sponges, Oh My!
So, today I played with a combo of the new triangle brushes and sea sponges for the foliage. I learned the sea sponge technique from a You Tube video and I think it has become my go to for most foliage. Smudge some, leave some and then maybe go back in after it dries for some detail if you wish.
Testing out the new Brushes
I just got a new set of triangle watercolor brushes and had to test them out. I think I am in love with them. And got them for a super sweet deal to boot!
