And also, I have been watching videos by Gary Tucker on YouTube. Some useful tips in there.
So here are the first two paintings.
|This one is a bigger painting (I should really learn watercolour paper sizes). It's based on that frustrating morning in Powerscourt when it was windy and drizzly at the same time! But there were lovely colours in the trees in the distance. And my eye was caught by the softness of the light and how stark the tree was against the blur of the mountains behind.|
