A couple of months ago I lent a post about my watercolour know( in a few of months I’ll celebrate my first anniversary of coating with watercolor) and today I’d like to share my progress again focusing on birds.
Why birds? Because for me it is an opportunity to get deeper into details on a small sheet of paper and at the same period an interminable opportunity to try interminable combinations of different proficiencies enjoing the attractivenes of these creatures.
Bleedings on soggy in soak proficiency is surely something simply watercolor can do. But employing it as more “graphy” technique lets you get deeper into details. Cultivating on each plumage certainly takes time and perseverance( something I would only dream about few months before ).
May 2016 vs. Janyary 2017. My acquaintances on Instagram read: “Oh, come near! These are just different modes! ”. I like this pretext, but candidly both in May and in January I wanted to get the same upshot.
Painting white-hot use watercolor is my favorite thing. In information white is never white-hot- it obscures so many different colours! For instance, covering this white raven I use ultramarine, burnt umber and vermilion colour. And I lastly learned how to coat respectable tree branch!
Another challenge is suite. To make it informative but don’t let it overweight the main reference.
Sometimes it might look easy. But believe me it doesn’t always happen right off. A couple of months ago I wrote that it’s all about utilizing the right tools such as newspaper/ decorates etc. But the most important tool is self-criticism.
