|Last October-Transparent Watercolor- Unframed $150|
I have been messing around with acrylics and I am far from mastering that, but learning how to work with the medium. I started an 11 x 14 on canvas board of a large dahlia with a dark background. It has a long way to go, so I will post when that one is completed if it is worthy of seeing.
And my watercolors are sometimes frustrating, but I continue to go back and try and work a full painting using transparent watercolor only.
Today, I did a scene that was from last October of a photo I took I believe in Libertyville, so of course, I call this one "Last October". It is a transparent watercolor on Canson, 12 x 18, 140 lb. paper. I used a variety of colors, which include: burnt alizrin, sepia, paynes gray, violet, indigo, hunter green, quinacridone gold, cadimuim and lemon yellow. I usually mix my hunter with the indigo to get a darker green. The violet, paynes gray and the indigo to get a dark deep color for depth. And to give me my whites back, I scraped the surface of the tree trunks to brighten them.
