Original Creation

By the lake

Tom0779 20 Aug 2020

Recently I bought a high quality 100% cotton watercolor block from arches. It is in format 15 x 30 cm (5,9 x 11,8 in). I like these panorama formats for the water color and I plan to paint some scenes with water and maybe sometimes reflections. This is wet in wet and to get a contrast the grass in the foreground has been made very strong. I found this idea on Youtube.



An interesting work as if taken with a high-grade camera with a focal length in the foreground and blurring the back.

Thanks Jin, this is an effect you can relatively easy create with watercolors. I am not sure if such an effect can be done with any other medium.

I’ll leave my comment here, but 3-4 others you just did are very well done; silhouette from office, dock scene, sailboats by coast are few I just saw and you are doing very well with watercolors and making a complete scene. I really like the distant fuzzy look then close up details in this painting along with the soft colors.

Thanks Midnite Painter. I am pleased you like the watercolor paintings.
