Original Creation

Village in the mountains

Tom0779 05 Jun 2020

Here an other watercolor painting I did some time ago. In the background you should (hopefully) see a church and some house roofs disappearing in the fog. Fog is one of the nicest effects you can create with watercolors. I hope you like it.

Tom, this is beautiful little painting! With cute little houses and church in the fog. I like long shadows of the trees and like how sunny side is bright and like that you got middle tone in those trees.

Thanks Sunnylady. I really enjoyed this one. I forgot to mention that the cloud is made with a paper towel by just removing the wet paint. An other technique I have learned.

Sunnylady Community Darling

Oh really? I was thinking they were made with white gouache.

Tom0779 Multi-Medium-Talent

No. Just tiny circles with the towel. You need to be careful land turn it at every swipe. Then it works.

Thanks for the advice!

Tom, this I think is very helpful video for wet on wet. Check it out.

Thanks a lot Sunnylady. Wet in Wet is the most difficult technique in watercolors in my opinion, in oils its really simple - if you use the Ross/Alexander method.

I really liked how Diane showed things that happen on the pallet and brush strokes. I think this is one of the best videos they made.

I agree about wet on wet for water colors. It is so easy to mess up.

Tom0779 Multi-Medium-Talent

Yes, she seems to paint more like Bob does.
