View Full Version : No 18... Series 5
Next in series.... I am trying to get as much painting done as I can before I return to Sydney.....I have been doing these as a series to work on my W/C blending. I have deliberately limited my palette to 2 colours (burnt Sienna, Indigo), so I dont confuse my values by introducing too much color. As a result they are fairly simplistic, but I like the results, so I will probably do more of these.
Arches 12 x 16 CP (painting actually 27 cm x 27 cm.... I'm trying to get used to metric again :))
Thanks for viewing... I hope you enjoy
P.S. I also posted this in Watercolour for all the W/C folks

I like this piece. Good placement I think. My only criticism is using burnt siena as part of the limited pallette. It's too orangey which tends to dominate the light that so beautiful on this figure. Perhaps more indigo washes could tone that down.

I really like this series, with all the closeups.
Going back to Sydney, 'eh? Good on ya, mate. Fairdinkum.

Ugh. That sounds like my dad.

PJL, This is nice, you are getting good at this watercolour! Such a difficult thing to master it is too.
Coming back to Sydney in time for the summer are you?

Wow, I love this. Excellent figure. The face is particularly good.
SanDL... nteresting comment.. not really looked at it in that light. I might try something on a scrap piece of paper to see if it works for me.
Nathan.. and you told me you'd lost your Aussie accent LOL

I like this very much. I like the way you did all of it but I find my eyes linger around her shoulder, her face, hair and torso. You are really inspiring!
