First Set

Watercolors

On the principle that the first hundred don't count, I started some watercolor practice pieces today. I have a goal in mind and want to work toward it. I am more a detail-oriented painter in oils, but want to practice very loose, atmospheric, wash and brush effects.

Counting:

One

Various flower and bird forms - meh....
 

Two 

Worse.....
 

Three

 Needs lots more practice....
 

Four

More what I am used to, but not what I am heading toward....
 

Five

Trying out effects. First, very loose washes....

 

......then add salt, and let dry.....
 

.....then add life forms. Some nice efffects, but needs much more practice.

 


Only ninety five to go.
