Painting #1 imaginary landscape
I had no preconceived idea of what this painting was going to be. I brushed on some color and watched them mingle, and that is when I saw my landscape take shape and then “helped” it along, let me tell you, what a joy it is to paint like this!
Painting #2 Bullards
I am not too much in love with this one, I thought I would include it.
Painting #3 imaginary landscape
What is truly interesting about this one is that I was trying for a realistic painting of a rocky path with trees. It wasn’t working and I almost gave up when I decided to let go of the uncertainty and my fear. I then saw my scene and how to proceed, mainly it coincided when I worked a beam of light coming down. To me it looks like a shaft of light hitting high mountain crags.
Painting #4 Lake Francis
One day I decided to paint this scene over and over, this particular painting is one of my favorites. I don’t particularly care for that shore on the right but it is what it is.
Painting #5 lake Francis
I really like this one though not the way I painted the group of trees on the right.
Painting #6 Imaginary Landscape
I had fun with this one, I refrained from putting in too much detail. I think that my many attempts at painting Lake Francis influenced me. By the way this is on hot press watercolor paper, I adore hp! I suggest that you give it a try, let loose and enjoy the adventure.
I have more to share but it will have to wait until next time. Happy painting!
