While working at my mom's trying to pack up her house in order to sell it, I found some of my old watercolor paintings. Oh my! They are over 30 years old. I sure painted differently back then...or now.
This is a very limited color palette and the painting is overworked and really muddy. This photo makes the painting look better than it is. There are some things that I like about it and some...NOT.
The second one is one I did last night. I thought I would be able to whip it out, but I detailed all those little trees in the background. I thought I would experiment a bit and I used some white opaque. Maybe the next one will be one where I try to paint it really loose. We shall see....Maybe the next one the snow will have melted.
