#15

MY IMAGE(S):





GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: #15
Year Created: 2004
Medium: Watercolor
Surface: Paper
Dimension: 24
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
A 1967 Ferrari 312F1<br>Comment/critique at will.<br>But i do have an inquiry (next panel).

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
What i would like is feedback on the use of an ink line drawing and then hitting it with watercolour. Does this bother anyone - either from an aestheic POV or the "rules of WC" POV? I usually use this for the engine pictures or if there is complex architecture behind the car.<br>Does the majority of WC artists out there solidly agree against the use of the drawing or does it matter a great deal?<br><br>thank you...

Re: #15

Ink? Why not? Go for it, if it works for your image - which I think it does.

Some watercolor societies are purists and disallow ANYTHING except transparent watercolor.

Some, like the Ohio Watercolor Society allow anything including collaged parts, glued on textures, gouache, acrylic, etc.

Here's what I think. Make your art the way it suits your art. You're good. There will be recognition of this. Forget the people who dismiss it because you used a bit of ink. Pffft!

One thing I really would consider changing is that green, though. It's acidic and too intense for the rest of the painting. You simply don't need it that bright. What od you think about glazing over it in a warmish neutral? Soft orange, perhaps?

Re: #15

Thanks for the reply. Some great thoughts.
And you ARE right about the green... i wanted to convey the bright Florida sun, but got a little neon with the grass. Thanks.
