Monochromatic Colour Scheme......
today's art lesson was "how to paint a water scene in watercolour".......what a disaster!
i don't know what possessed me to attempt it.......watercolour landscapes were never a priority for me.
having not painted with this medium for many years, it was a shock to the system.
my first attempt was discarded & the next nowhere near finished.
i came home from class & looked through my old watercolours to see if i had ever been able to paint water.......i found a couple, so back to the drawing board i guess.......or leave it alone, maybe?
so i have posted my "acrylic landscape" from a couple of weeks ago.
the lesson was painting "aerial perspective in a monochrome colour scheme".
the palette knife is growing on me.......i started with a brush but kept looking for the knife, it suits my "give it a go, see what happens attitude". i like that i can "feel" where the paint is going on the canvas.
