vivienb november page a day challenge

1



watercolour and coloured pencil 12x6 inches in watercolour book

The world has turned amber and gold here with the autumn - this started work as a splattering demo for my morning class and developed in the afternoon one (they'd had the demo the previous week, shown in the october book) to show how to move it on and work into it.

Re: vivienb november page a day challenge

oh, WOW, that is beautiful. I just love the water in front of the smattered trees and the little bullrushes at front and darker bushes around the trees. You do such beautiful work. Wish that I was in your class!

Re: vivienb november page a day challenge

Wow! Those autumn colors just blast off that page! Great texture as well! I assume you are using tube paints? I can't seem to get pans dry enough (ironically) and dense enough to create texture.

Re: vivienb november page a day challenge

Really vivid, I'll add a POW and a WOW as well.

No autumn display like that here. I'd be jealous but I prefer the warmer latitudes!

thanks everyone

no not tube paints but the St Petersburg White Knights pans. I love them for their richness. And for their price! I have tubes of W&N artists colours but tend to pick the White Nights up for their ease of use - and no waste.

The paint has no texture - as in raised areas - in itself. The illusion of texture is just done with the paint. The paper is very smooth hot pressed Somerset.

Re: vivienb november page a day challenge

Those are the Yarka ones?! I have a set of those. . . I experimented with them some but never really done a full painting with them. You do lovely work with them. WOW.

Re: vivienb november page a day challenge

yes they are the ones - lovely rich colours that lift easily.

thanks everyone

I've been working on canvasses all day so had better catch up and get a couple of small pages done for this challenge.
