Original Creation

Reflected trees

Tom0779 02 Jun 2020

This one is done during my watercolor phase. It’s an other one which deals with reflections. This one followed a concrete plan in contrast to the other one I posted today which was very spontaneous.

The water is perfectly glassy and very effective. Great work!

It is incredible to understand it is watercolors.
Water is like a mirror!

Thank you Sunnylady. The reflection was painted upside down again, just with less details. Then I went over the water with a "thirsty brush". This can be done by dipping the brush into the water, then dry it and with that go over the dry paint. It will remove a bit of the paint and then create the glassy effect dracula mentioned above. A few strokes with the liner brush and opaque white for finishing touches.

Impressive Tom, I keep thinking it is acrylics! However the sky looks like a pure joy of watercolors. My mind is getting tricked with this painting.

Well I think it is possible to create a few effects in watercolor also, you just need to follow the rule: paint from light to dark. The trees are not really amazing if I now check them :)
