I am expecting my set of PP's tomorrow and would like to try the last picture you did, but am not sure how to start.... Any help would be soooo appreciated!
Have already signed up for the Rocks classes, and do I ever need help there.
Eager to learn as always,
Gratefully,

I did the shape block ins only without detail. The detail went on with the PanPastel. I only draw the major shapes. One way to visualize tghis is to pretend you surround an object with a bed sheet. You would not see what is in that shape right? Only its contour. That's what your draw.

Johannes -- After participating with you since "Water" in December, may I humbly suggest a 15th commandment?

"THOU SHALT NOT PAINT WHAT IS IN THE PHOTOGRAPH! " --- or something similar?

The commandments precisely sum up to getting off photo slavery.

Re: Essentials of Painting Waterfalls -Discussion

Joe, you probable have stated this many times, but I need to ask. For the color of water do you mainly use viridian green and ultra marine blue?

thanks ted

I don't use viridian in watercolor Ted because it is grainy. I use hooker's green + ultramaribe blue + burnt sienna (knock back chroma) or instead of ultramarine and hooker's you can use payne's gray
Basically payne's gray and hooker's makes a good color for water.

Also add a little red to gray the hue. For watercolor I would use cobalt blue, or prussian blue or payne;s gray instead of Ultramarine blue because the latter is sedentary. If you use paynes then you don't need red.

Thanks again Jo, I tried those colors, the water is much better, not so bright.
