Watercolor Secrets


Castle under a Stormy Sky
6" x 9"
W&N Artists' Watercolor on Canson Montval cold press watercolor paper, 140lb.

This did not come out as much like Bob Davies's version as I hoped it would, but it came out a pretty interesting painting anyway, I think. Very strong. I got some washes stronger than he did and others weaker, then by the time I was done tweaking and lifting out highlights I realized that the direction of the light was opposite what he had. So I changed the light on the landscape by 180 degrees.

I think I may need to work a bit larger on some of these. But it could be cool, the next one is sort of similar because it's the Rainy Sky and I'll just move on -- and maybe use a bigger piece of paper.
