When a watercolor turns into a mess ... that's when the fun just begins ~
But why knock yourself out - when attempting to work out a color scheme?
One of my favorite mentors - Napoleon Hill ... once said in 1937 ...
"what the mind can conceive - one can achieve."
That's why I ran your BORING
composition through Topaz Studio 2.2
Your original composition is super strong - look what can happen with it ...
- The artist today does not have to beat oneself up ...
the way Norman Rockwell did almost 70 years ago -
(literally painting through 30-40 iterations)
to figure out the best color scheme.
Today we have help ... the PC.
Paint your original. Then - get the look.
Then repaint it.
You don't want people to say about YOUR
paintings ... "Hmmm - reminds me of Dean Crouser."
Remember what Dean Crouser says ... " I make a concerted effort to be loose and spontaneous and let the paint flow freely to create the Ďaccidentsí that are possible with watercolors when they are allowed to work on their own."
But he has a lifetime of observing his subject matter - Crouser spent childhood summers camping and fishing on the foothills of Mt. Hood, Columbia River Gorge and Central Oregonís Cascade Lakes. It was these early outdoor experiences and appreciation of natural scenic beauty that provides the groundwork of inspiration for his artwork today.
So - do it YOUR way.
* If I told you more about what Topaz
can do with your composition -
you wouldn't believe it.
So - you'll just have to see it for yourself.
