Wink Re: Landscape project for August

Hi I have only just noticed this site. Have done some of the pictures from the August site and will be doing the ones in the September.
Hope you like them.

Nice work, in both.
I think you need more darks in both cases try that next time.
I have tried to show you by altering in Photoshop, Hope you don't mind.

When you do watercolours, remember it is see through medium ,block out he shapes of the weeds with masking tape, otherwise it spoils it by showing through the back shapes of the rocks.



I have darkened below your bushes and the tree some, and below the tree, repeat your color throughout the painting, it is more successful.

Thats much nicer.....
Remember anything must be anchored, like trees have a shadow somehow even in the middle of the day.
that means darks under the tree, or bush thats why I mentioned it.
