Latest Landscape

Playing around with watercolor and my old pastel sandpaper. I'm forever looking at ways to add texture with watercolor.


C&C welcome

Re: Latest Landscape

Interesting technique that could be used to advantage for certain types of landscapes. I am not sure a photo does it justice.

Re: Latest Landscape

I agree, would probably have gone with a creme colored mat

Re: Latest Landscape

Is the mat the frame or the passe partout? Well, whatever it is, I think your husband is a very astute gentleman, because I agree with him . You however.....😄. The first thing I thought of when I saw it was a rainbow: I love the bands of colour. I know nothing about sandpaper of which you speak but, I assume, IRL, it has a lovely texture, which will only enhance its beauty. I looks gorgeous in the frame! One for the wall!!

Re: Latest Landscape

That looks much better. Is that mat a slight shade of green? If so, I want to try that combo someday.

Re: Latest Landscape

When I was into watercolor ( for 12 years ) I tried everything to get texture into my work - painting on pastel paper was but one way - I also put washed sand into my paint - I ended up switching to acrylics for my need for textures.

I like this paintung - nice composition & color - very nice work.

Re: Latest Landscape

I like this. The texture worked. You added thicker paint in some dots as well? Gary

Re: Latest Landscape

Cali Ann, what a winner this painting is! It's got texture and lovely color harmonies and looks wonderful in that mat and frame! I'm glad you are finding a way for your watercolors and pastels to work together; the best of both worlds.

Re: Latest Landscape

A lovely arrangement of trees trunks & branches which are nicely broken by patterns of dotted foliage. Nice. Touches of pure color work terrific & I like your use of darker values, adjacent to the sunlit tree trunks, in the lower section. The frame looks O.K. IMO - Nicely Painted Cali.

Michael.

Re: Latest Landscape

CaliAnn this looks just beautiful in the frame with the matting.
I really like the colours you have used and that yellow for me acts like a backlighting to really make the rest of the painting work so well.
Great painting!!
John
