watercolour snowscene



I am focusing on portrait painting, I would like to greatly improve on it and I believe it will take some time. One of the artists in portraiture here on WetCanvas sent me a private message encouraging me. She said she studied it for a year and this has inspired me to do the same, I hope I will manage to stay focused! I thought it would be nice to post some of my watercolour paintings for a change. This is a winter scene along the river Dee, it is 12 x 16 inches using arches rough paper and W&N artist quality paints. I used some liquin in my water to help the flow of the paint.

The sky is so beautiful and the reflections on the water and land look really cool.

Re: watercolour snowscene

I really like your expressive use of color and sharp value contrasts in this. It strikes me a daring way to paint. Good luck with your portraits. Variation is fun. Gary

Re: watercolour snowscene

Great light, color, and edges! I would also encourage you to keep at it with portraiture- one of the most challenging of genres.

Re: watercolour snowscene

Thank you so much onestrokeartist, Wes and Rob. Thanks Gary, Thank you for your good wishes with my portrait work, though find the oil and portraiture forum much quieter than the landscape forum here on Wetcanvas. Variation is good, yet in our country we have the saying 'Jack of all trades, master of none' meaning you end up never really excelling in anything if you do too much variety.
Thank you CaliAnn and Richard for your nice comment.
Hi Ken, thank you!I will try to keep at the portraits Ken, it is very interesting and challenging, you are right!
Many thanks Dave for your nice comment.

Re: watercolour snowscene

Caroline: Super painting - Reminds me of Farquharson's work; he too painted around the Dee -

Very beautiful! It sparkles with light. Love the rhythm and colour in the sky. That patch of blue is makes it for me.

Lovely Watercolor Caroline.
Good for you, going into portraits. A real challenge. Landscapes are forgiving and portraits are not-so forgiving.
Hope to see your results posted.

Re: watercolour snowscene

Hello Hud, Joseph Farquharson's paintings are known to me. The estate where he was laird during his lifetime I also know very well. He lived a truly wonderful life, painting and living a very long life until he was 89 years old. His fine home was decorated in tartan and he gave balls. I would love to have attended one of them and seen him. He had a tiny outdoor studio on wheels so he could paint the beautiful countryside that he was laird over. He had artificial sheep which he would re position so he could paint them within his landscapes! He was a very fine oil painter. You are right that he was known for his snow paintings and some of them had lovely setting sun skies. That must have been the connection for you to think of this artist Hud.
