Path to Indiana's Fall - step-by-step
watercolor 11 x 15
A few weeks ago I won a merchandise award with the Illinois Watercolor Society's member's show. One of the things that I won was a block of Stephen Quiller's 300# paper. This is a block by Jack Richeson. This is a new size for me and I thought I would try some new techniques. Who says that all watercolors have to be soft, light and transparent. I love a lot of the work by the oil painters on Facebook so I thought why not try to see if I could catch that look in watercolor. I have 4 in this series so far. I am trying to catch the textures of the foliage.
The colors are not as true to the painting. I have a new computer and a new program for photos. So until I know what I am doing...enjoy.
