A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: Mountains and Lakes
Project Leader: geof
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Painting
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Landscape
Days open for signups: Always
Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:

Do you like beautiful scenery? Do you like unspoilt nature? Two Wetcanvas members Pampe and Yorky do and both chose to paint Bow Lake in the Canadian Rockies (see reference links below). Their discussion threads in the Watercolor forum gave me the idea that it might be a good thing to make this subject into a project and widen it out to include all mediums and approaches to landscape painting.

There are three lakes to choose from:

<UL>
<LI>Bow Lake</LI>
<LI>Lake Agnes</LI>
<LI>Waterfowl Lake

</LI></UL>
all in the same region of the Canadian Rockies.

There are three views of each lake, so get choosing - choose a lake, choose a view, work out your composition, decide on your values, color scheme and medium: and <P><FONT color=#00ff00></FONT><FONT face=Tahoma color=#00ff00>GET PAINTING</FONT>

</P>

Look forward to joining with you,
Geof.

Those reference photos are too beautiful to pass up. Don't know when I'll get around to painting one, but I will sign up for the project, it gives me an incentive to paint a landscape.

Hi Jijo that is a lovely sketch. Many thanks for sharing it with us. :)

Are you going to paint a finished picture from it or have a go at another view? -- I am delighted that somebody has got this - my first project off the ground so quickly.

Wow Doug !!!!! You're really smokin at the moment :clap: :clap: :clap:

I like the way you have kept the really vertical feel of the rock and developed a pattern element within the mountains. The only suggestions I would make are:


a warm glaze over the right hand near slope to differentiate it from the furthest away cliff,
and a bit more dark colour in the water applied with horizontal strokes (may be good to work carefully wet in wet).

Thanks for taking part, you can always do some more later if you feel inspired.:)

Yorky
01-10-2003, 03:29 PM
Thanks all for positive reactions.

Thanks Geof I had trouble withthe water. Initially I had in mind an exact reflection of the mountains, but I think that would have been too much. It does need more work though on the lines you suggested. I will wash out a coulple of wind streaks to give it a bit more life.

The mountains are spectacular--love the vertical crevices and crags. The snowy patches add interesting diagonals to the composition.

This is excellent! Keep the progress shots coming! I am really interested in seeing how you watercolorists complete a painting. When I do watercolor I get just so far and then my mind goes blank and the paper usually ends up in a file somewhere. Maybe after seeing enough of these gorgeous progress reports I'll know how to do watercolor! Love your colors and your crags and crevices.

Thanks, Mary Ruth - I looked back at the reference photo and think I will put the left hand rock face in shadow to help the composition. I have also to improve my treatment of the lake.

Hi Doug,

I think this is a big improvement. It is quite tricky to get depth in these mountain landscapes when the mountains rear up right in your face so to speak. The sense of depth is much improved and the water in the lake looks much better.

Good work coffee girl! I think the first land mass that jut's out into the water needs to have a highlight scratched in where the land meets the water to anchor it. The bluish/grey one.

Hi Jijo,

Critique for you.

Agree with Doug about the conifer in the left foreground. It's shape in your painting is not in keeping with the shapes that predominate in the rest of the picture. Also I feel that the very light colour of the Lake across the base of the picture tends to make the mountains look unstable - they look as if they could sink to the bottom of the picture. As Doug suggested some streaks of wind ruffled water could liven this area up a bit also some darker parts in the immediate foreground might correct the tendency for the water to look as if it going uphill.

These are fairly fine points. Your painting is lovely and I really like the way that you have sightly abstracted the cliffs and painted them in a geometric way that reads to me as if you have found a metaphor in a natural scene for a modern cityscape.

Very well done and thank you for taking part in the project.

Hi Jijo,

I tried to see your painting full-sized but for some reason it wouldn't open up for me. From what I can see in this small version though, it is really well-done. Very nice details of the mountains.

Really like this painting Sarah. For me you have managed to create a feeling of menace and foreboding.

Although I love the mountains they can rear up and strike you at any time and need to treated with respect. I have survived being caught up in a couple of blizzards that were definitely not funny and also been lucky enough to survive three falls, two when the ground crumbled away under me and one when I slipped on greasy rocks. Fortunately with only bruises and sprains. Your painting reminds me that care and concentration are needed.

Many thanks for your entry

Rich, wonderful textures!! I like your sky, water and it's light reflections and the detail of the first plane pines.
Little critic:I think you can put more shadows in the mountains to reinforce their volume and vanish the right side of the brown splash in the middle right hills.

Hi Rich,

I really like the way you have handled this. The use of the properties inherent in watercolour paint for the simplification of the cliff faces is very good and the surface of the lake looks very flat and waterlike. If this was mine I would not change either of those parts of the painting. For next time the only nit pick that I can suggest is to simplify the trees in a way that they look as painterly as the rock faces. Well done and thanks for your entry.

The different approach to the rock faces works well, Rich. The lake looks very still though and I would have expected some reflection of the mountains.

I am going to work on the right side foreground land mass a little and probably leave the rest alone.

Doug, there might be a place for a reflection of the mountain in the water, I will revisit that and maybe paint one on a transparent sheet of plastic to see what it looks like before I commit.

geof,
I apologize for being so demanding...
I changed my mind & dropped out of the project... I don't want to be unfair
to those that go to the trouble/work to stay in the bounds of the project...
I appreciate your patience with me...
I'm a newbie to the WC and don't want the reputation of making
demands and having special rules for me... I despise that type of person...
there's nothing special about my paintings and I have no reputation or
status in the painting community... I just have so little time to paint,
that I have to pick my subjects wisely...

I really was just asking what the rules were for this and other projects...
apparently the rules are setup in the project description... I'm still
trying to understand how things work in the WC...

I will be checking on this project from time to time... I want to
learn from the fantastic talent that frequents this forum... I have
a long ways to go... and expect to find lots of good advice from
those more experienced than me... As I progress I hope
I can pass along my little bit of insight to those who haven't
caught up to me yet...

I'll will put up my painting in a independent post for review...

By the way Watercolorman...Wekcome to WC!

That is an absolutely gorgeous photo. Did you take it? A painting from that reference could be exquisite.

Some of the art projects call to use the reference posted and some don't. It doesn't hurt to ask and Geof said it didn't matter. You'll discover that everyone here is pretty flexible for the most part although there are some forums they want you to play strictly by the rules. You don't need to feel bad for asking though...that's how we learn.

I'm looking forward to seeing this painting and if you don't post it here, please at least post a link to where you do put it.

In the meantime, enjoy painting and agan, welcome to WC!

This is fine for a first attempt, Jupe.

I suggest you go a little darker in the shadows on the rock faces and the lake needs some darker streaks and possibly some reflections/ wind marks to liven it up.

Hi All,

I just figured out how to get my attempt at this project into the thread.

I'd reall appreciate some feedback. Getting some kind of texture on the mountains and still keeping the white for the snow was a real challenge.

I like it! especially the mountain and scree slopes on the right.

I think you need some shadows in the snow in the saddle between the two peaks in the background, (the shadow from the left hand peak) and perhaps darken the right hand peak a little - it seems to fade into the sky.

There are two ways to protect the snow when painting the mountains, either paint around them (negative painting - tricky) or use masking fluid (easier).

Negative painting is very effective so long as you only need to paint in one wash. It is very difficult to folow the same lines if you have to darken a wash between areas of snow, and you lose the sharp edges. In this case I would paint the small areas of snow in first with masking fluid (frisket).

This is a very good painting which only needs the odd touch to make it great.

Doug

riverman
01-20-2003, 10:36 AM
Thanks Doug. I appreciate you looking and taking the time to comment. I'll do some work on that back peak and the saddle area.

I tried the masking idea on my first attempt (on the back of this one...LOL!) but it came out looking really fake. What I might do next time is take more time with the masking and see if I can get it to look a little more natural.

Thanks again.

Peter

lynn_cyr
01-20-2003, 10:41 AM
Peter,

This looks really good. I often find that masking alone does look a bit fake once you remove it, but then you can always go back and tweak it some more with some grays, etc..

In my background mountains, I masked the entire white area, then when the whole piece was done, I removed the masking and went back with a very pale wash of grey and added some depth to the snow (so that it's not just a big white blob).

Hope this helps!

Lynn

Wonderful light reflections in the water from the beautiful sky. Very nice colors in the mountains and grasses along the lake. The only nit to pick is that the tallest mountain peak seems a little too centrally positioned in the picture plane. Other than that, this is a lovely painting.

This is definitely a mchew! Your style is now immediately recognisable Marvin. I particularly like the mountain and the screes. I feel for you with the foreground trees, there's always this battle between a detailed foreground and the real subject which is the background mountain :(

I think you did a nice job - including the trees.

Marvin, I enjoy all your works, your improves are fantastic, your teaches is a Master and you are a good pupil...
I like the way you draw and you technique is getting better and better. Yes it is still a bit literal but in this case you got all the textures and planes of a hard composition ref picture.
Little critic: the lake seems a bit plane, it needs some more perspective. Anyway it is fantastic.

I like this oil pastel version. They are a nice medium for working broadly in landscape. I have done a couple myself but have not posted them up on WC. I intend to do some en plein aire work with them in the not to distant future. You should try some more of these, perhaps combining them with watercolour etc.

Well done and thanks for taking part in the project.

This is the smallest painting I've done to date. Only about 5"x7". Watercolour on Strathmore paper. I think Ive been spoiled working on Arches and will probably try again on Arches, seems to hold the water more evenly and colour spreads with more control. I think the sloped hill coming in from the right is also a little too lineal and could use a bit more contouring. Ah well, it was fun.



Nice work Arch, not so easy in this size. Agree with you about the linear quality of the middle distance. does not necessarily need contouring, could be silhouetted but made to undulate a bit if that suited what you were trying to get over. Well done and thanks for taking part in the project.

Nice one Artman, Interesting colour scheme and an unusual kind of jagged geometric approach that I like and think is original. The dark slash running diagonally in the middle distance is perhaps a bit too insistent. On my screen it seems to jump out of the picture. Maybe should be toned in a bit. Well done and thanks for taking part.

compositional/tonal sketch..... looking at it again now will probably darken sky on lower right for balance. Foreground modified to give lead into picture. Main difficulty I see will be to create impression of width of lake.

Like the way you have gone about this Dave. The tonal sketch has clearly enabled you to identify and solve a number of problems in advance. All the books and teachers that I know of advise the use of a sketch in this way and here it is possible to see the dividend that results from using one.
Thanks for taking part. Very well done.

Really nice fluid handling of the paint. I see what you mean about the value balance. Seems like everything is compressed into one (at most two) plane. I think that a value sketch in pencil or charcoal or monochrome watercolur would help you to overcome this sort of problem. Have a look at the entry by Dave.t for an example of this. Thanks for taking part .

Lovely painting Marvin. The paint quality on the mountains is very nice indeed. Colours are well balanced and values work well. I see what you mean about the foreground. The way you have painted the mountains this picture cries out to have a very loose foreground to act as a frame and to let the eye pass straight over it to the more important parts of the painting. Thanks for taking part.

Hi Christie,

These entries make a lovely series. I particularly like the natural colours that you have used. They could be turned into a really nice set of cards if you have access to a decent printer. Well done and thanks for taking part.

I do have access to a good printer, but they are far too small to be used as cards (2" x 3" or so). Besides, i framed them up as a 65th birthday gift for my mum.

They were fun to do and led to my being invited to put some work into an art show.

I had a lot of trouble getting the snow to look realistic. I'd appreciate any suggestions/comments..thanks :)

I really like the simple treatment you have given this scene Peter. In my opinion it enhances the dramatic lines of the composition. The colours are very nicely laid and the paint is not overworkd. Regarding the snow there are a couple of possibilities: one leave it out, two wash a pale blue/purple wash over any snow that is not in direct sunlight. Either of these approaches would have been compatible with your handling of the scene I feel. Many thanks for taking part.

This was painted as a "rest" from a more detailed painting and I thoroughly enjoyed painting this!!

So glad you enjoyed it Em. Really like the individual rendering that you have produced. Your handling is loose and the colours work so well together. It is nice to see a piece that moves so far away from the reference and gives a personal interpretation to a photo. Thanks for taking part.

Thanks Geoff for your kind comments about my first oil pastel attempt. I still think it looks like a crayola drawing, however, I have ordered a full set of Sennelier oil pastels on faith, having been told the good oil pastels are much more satisfactory. I like that they are dust free and the finished work is not so fragile. I too intend to use them for en plein aire. We shall see.

It didn't turn out as nicely as I wanted it to. I guess I have to work on my photo renditions.

Hi Vasili, I like this rendering. I think that you have interpreted the photo very well. There is no particular need to go for photo-realistic effects. Some folks like that way of painting and other folks like to bring a more individual approach to their work. I think if I was going to attempt this scene I would do a couple of small graphite thumbnails: one with the left foreground trees in and one without them. I think it is possible that those trees sticking up are blocking the eye from moving into the composition and then pulling it back to the left corner. Like the way that you have rendered the mountains. Thanks for taking part.

Hi folks.

I am really sorry for taking so long to comment on your work. I realise that you have put in a lot of time and effort and that I should have posted my comments sooner. Unfortunately, without going into painful details, I have been ill for a good while now. One of my symptoms is the inability to prioritise what I need to do. Perhaps it was a bad time to run my first project, however I did not realise how much work it takes and also I thought I was rather nearer to recovery than I am. Thanks so much for your patience and your support for the project.

Hi Mikki. I only have cheap oil pastels, cannot afford any more at the present time. However I have had quite a lot of positive response to my third painting from the family. So who knows - birthday is in July - might be lucky. lol I'd like to know how you get on with your artist quality pastels.

Amazing coincidence! Fed Ex just delivered my set of Sennelier Oil Pastels. I had a small windfall so ordered the complete set of 100. I cannot find words to describe these. They are spectacularly rich and creamy, vibrantly colored, beautiful range of colors with lots of lights and darks. It's sort of like holding sticks of paint in your hands. They blend as easily as soft pastels without the dusty mess. I am completely fascinated! Do I recommend them? If you have been working with the cheap stuff, you would go nuts over the artist quality.

This is a stunning painting! It is light and bright and simply shimmers with the air of Montana! Wonderful!
