Land and Water
14" x 10" image size
I began this painting early this morning to study light effects on land and water. I wanted to create a visual distance from the mid-ground to the back land mass. The plan is to darken parts of the sky then to add some detail into the foreground. This is on the old watercolor paper (notice the rippling in the paper even though the paper wasn't soaked) and so far no small beads or rolls of paper but there hasn't been any scrubbing or lifting either.
I darkened the sky, foreground and added a bit of quinacridone burnt sienna to the midground land mass. Dribbled in some alcohol in the foreground to displace some of the paint to create a bit of pattern.
The Fabriano and Twinrocker paper arrived at the post office, brought home and has now been opened. I'm excited to try the Twinrocker paper which is hand made. I first heard of it in a video by Jim Kosvanec, who does gorgeous watercolors. Hopefully the paint and masking fluid will be delivered today!
