The original thread is here. (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1240342)


75cm x 60cm on stretched canvas.
My latest from the last few days, different but still a water scene.
It's not of anyone I know, just a little girl investigating.

Absolutely charming, Paul! I can't decide where you shine the most, portraits of children or seascapes. I hope you stay busy, these paintings you are putting out are a real treat to the eyes.

Thank you Eloise, I keep pretty busy concocting these works, I just need to sell some now, the house is getting quite congested.
Thank you Kathie, I can't seem to get away from water although I try for variety.
Thanks Keith, I'm finally getting to grips with copying photos, sometimes the scenes are created by uniting two images.
Thank you Susan, just about to start again, faster, faster!

Holy Smoke! That is stunning and beautiful on so many levels. I think you have mastered your medium. (This is yet another painting [and another artist] whom I would love to see WIP for every painting posted, or would like to hang out and watch you paint--because I don't know how you did that.)

Excellent work Paul, the subtle colour of the water is a tricky one that you've handled well.

Thank you Donovan, this was one picture I just had to paint, I think I only posted one WIP ( low tide) but will do more. You're welcome to hang out but I'm a long way from home.
Thank you Alex, water is almost hypnotizing to me, it wont let me go.
Thank you Neil, I feel I'm improving with every painting.
Thanks Wassie for your praise.
Hi Chammi, I still have problems with the skintones and require numerous glazes to get them right.

Thank you Susan, this was a challenge I thoroughly enjoyed. It was the water that got me in at first.

Thank you Purple, I'm always on the lookout for these sort of photos, they make for perfect subjects.
Thanks ARCross, the innocent inquisitive nature of kids is a joy.
Thank you old h, I think colours were the most difficult part here.
Thanks Virginia, yes water certainly is a fascinating subject.

You're welcome Paul. I think it's neat when the photographers see what the artists have painted from their photos.

Oh my! I'm speakless! How do you do it? At first glance I thought it was oil. I work in acrylic, but I have to say, you have mastered the medium. You mentioned glazing in a previous post. Do you use any product specifically to keep the acrylic wet and fluid?

I have to agree, this is really fantastic. I have a grand daughter that would be doing that. Warms the heart

Thank you Claude, I am as fascinated with water as this little girl.
Thank you Jo, no mediums just water, I use the wet palette system. My glazes are usually done over dry paint or sometimes I scrub colour on top with a stiff hog bristle blending as I go.
Thank you AggieDarlin, yes the grandkids, I've painted all four of mine.

Thank you budhabee, the material had fairly broad treatment while the water was more difficult.
Thank you Kathrin, I appreciate it.
Thank you Brenda, your journey will get easier as you go, observe, absorb, create.
