Hi All:

This is a little study I did last spring, trying to learn how to do a high key painting…reflections on a shiny surface…folds in tissue paper. How did I do?

Paper: Kilimanjaro (what can I say, I bought a block! )
Paints: student grade: Reeves, Cotman, and Grumbacher

Comments and critiques welcome…that's how I'll learn how to handle watercolors. Thanks.

Not bad, could use a little more contrast, but all in all I like it.

Great job.............

Looks like you got your reflections and creases right, but we could do with a bigger image. Agree with Barbara about the contrast.

Hi Tigre, Ruth, and JoAnn,

Thanks for the comments. I've tried to resize it with another scan, hopefully that will be a little easier on the eyes.

I didn't put a lot of darks in this painting on purpose because I was going for a "high key" effect. I think that means very light colors, almost no darks. Maybe some of the more experienced painters can explain it better than that. It was something I read about in a Watercolor book so I thought I'd give it a try. Doubt if I would ever paint a "real" painting that way, but it was fun for a little study.


Sorry about the double post, I don't know how that happened. Guess I still don't have this scanner stuff down pat yet.

Hi looks pretty good but i am having a hard time with the light sourse....it looks like there is a shadow from the box going right to left but its not hitting the orange on the table if it did I think it would tone down that one and make it a better painting.
Good job.
Alan
