Watercolor painting

Watercolor painting

Chatting with Claire got me thinking about creating some art. I decided on watercolors as the barrier to entry, in terms of supplies, seemed pretty low. I hopped on Amazon, ordered some paint, a book of watercolor paper, and some scotch tape to frame the edges of my ‘canvas’. It’s not great, but it’s a thing:

These were my first 2 pieces. I practiced making a gradient on the left and attempting to create an aerial view of crashing waves.
A dusty country road on the left using textures and gradients (plus clouds). On the right, a sunset over the mountains: practicing gradients + layers.
Putting it all together: a still life of lemons on a plate. For scale, all of these are about half the size of a regular sheet of paper.
