Practice Practice Practice!


Still consider my self a beginner at watercolor.  But Practice makes perfect.  I painted this from a photo I took of my wife.  On to the next one.

    I don't like to use watercolor by myself because it never does what I want. So congratuations you got so far with it ;)

  7. Once again thanks everyone for the nice comments.

    I forget where we were but somewhere traveling and I happened to have the camera. I find it very appealing to see someone get lost in the moment.

    The lighting and composition seemed to fall right in place for this image and I did my best to try to capture translate it into watercolor. I'll do better next time I need more patience :o)

    I will also have to try to remember to be on the constant look out for the ordinary beautiful moments happening around me and try to record them.

  10. Thats awesome rad. I love the colors. They remind me of the great cool color palettes Pat Lee's Dark Minds comic book was so fond of using.

    I always struggle with mirror shots. Good stuff.
