This is my first WDE project and I've choosen Peaceful Pond. There is lots more to do on this - foliage, boat, etc. but ran out of time. Great fun.
11" x 15" Watercolor, Arches - 2 hrs.
Great photo's to choose from.

Welcome to WDE, Carolyn. Great watercolour technique. Love those tree trunks and the light turning the foliage to yellow gold. Looking really good. Please post the finish. :clap: :clap:

Welcome to the WDE addiction Carolyn. I really like how you did foliage. So nice and fresh looking. the yellows and greens compliment each other. Hope to see more, and thanks for participating. I'm glad you chose this image.

Welcome Carolyn, the foliage is very good, I love the way you've caught the light in the trees. Looking forward to seeing the finish.

Welcome to WDE. You've got a nice technique with watercolor. Fabulous greens! Hope you post the finished painting... :clap:
welcome to the WDE, Carolyn....I'm not a watercolorist but thinking that's a wet in wet technique on the foliage...very effective and i like the nice dark area that lets your eye rest. This IS very peaceful! :clap:

Thanks for your comments. Haven't had time to finish this but hopefully can work on it today.
The boat is not done and it has blue misket on it. It does look weird though.
This is beautiful! I especially love the foliage and the reflections in the water.
Welcome to WC and WDE!
