Three Castles
8" x 10"
Winsor & Newton Artist Watercolour on W&N Cotman 140lb watercolor paper. Based on the "Breezy Skies" demo in Watercolour Secrets by Bob Davies, mine is not a copy of his painting. Instead I used the technique but placed my clouds differently, then completely made up the landscape based on how it looked once the clouds dried. Most of the land effects are wet in wet too, the only wet on dry parts are the castles, the road and my signature.

It didn't want to scan well, all the light colors dropped to white leaving it looking spotted with only the darks showing. So I got a webcam photo of it and won't be doing prints. I like how it looks in person though, it's very lively in the clouds with lots of lost and found edges.


Three Horses
Pitt Artist Pens (Terra Set, Grays Set, Blue from Landscape Set)
4" x 6" Wirebound ProArt sketchbook paper
Photo reference by KreativeK from WetCanvas.com Weekend Drawing Event June 19-21, which lasted all week. Tomorrow there's a new one with images from Nepal. I loved so many of the references from this one that I had to do the horses before it ended!
