This is the first painting I have tried to compose myself. It is 15" x 22" on cold pressed, 140lb. paper. I have been painting watercolors about a month. Any comments welcome. Not a great picture, my digital camera isn't the best.

Are you serious ? Only a month with watercolors ?
I'm jealous.
I like the sujet an the clear composition.
I wonder what you show us after 2 month ? (Can't wait)

Have a nice day

Hi Kari - Really like your painting, particularly the lovely horizontal bands of sky, hills, and land. The path though does not fit in to my eye. If it had curved to the left and then come across the picture, it would have tied in with the horizontals above, and would have given the green patch of grass at the lower left a more interesting shape. But I like it anyway :)

You have all of the basics here. The composition is great! I think if you work on some contrasts in your grass and mountains you will have better results. I am amazed on how well you are doing after such a short period of time. Watercolor is not an easy medium to work in. congrats!! *SMILE*
