View Full Version : WDE 29 April - Boat and Wedding Flower challenge

It's been a while since I took part in a WDE!

Loved the tranquility of the boat picture. I used a few new watercolours I bought recently: potter's pink, cobalt violet and lunar black, with a bit of cobalt blue. It's A5 size and took about an hour.


Then I tried the challenge. I used to have an art teacher that made us do this at the start of every class - either our hand or a piece of scrunched up paper. I gradually got better at it. It's from the picture of the wedding flowers, I promise. :) It's A3 size and took about 10 minutes. Make of it what you will!


Hope the pics came out ok. I tried it from my phone as I've packed my cameras away for moving house.

The scene is so tranquil. I believe you that the contour is the wedding decoration :)

Most calm and quiet marine scene and love also the contour drawing!

Nice sketch of the lake but the flowers really catch the eye. This method seems to bring out a very individual line which people probably 'civilise' when they are looking at what they're drawing. Intriguing.

The boat scene is lovely and serene, Kay. I really like the limited palette. And what an expressive contour drawing!

Serene and unusual interpretation of the boat scene Kay ....... I love the contours of the flowers - as if from a totally different hand!:)
