Watercolor Paintings: Different Landscapes


Hello,

Watercolour painting seems like an addiction. I painted almost daily in the last two-three weeks. Can't share all the paintings {some of them are bad}, so sharing what I like. Hope you like them too.

This snowy and waterfall landscapes are inspired by Ekaterina Smirnova's YouTube painting tutorial. She is a great teacher. I was satisfied with the first one, but I was not really happy with the second one. Initially, it didn't look like a waterfall. So, I put it on the table and watched it. Slowly, it began to look like a waterfall. What do you think?

One of most important things that I have learned as a watercolourist is that we should not expect our paintings to look good while we are still painting or immediately after that. They look better after some time. Let it rest for some time before you judge.


And finally this one! I painted this on 26th January, our Republic Day. Honestly, I didn't plan the colours. I just started painting and then noticed that my colours represent the colours of  our National Flag! How lovely!

  8. Save what you call "bad" and next week you might find it isn't so bad OR you rework it for something wonderful! Happy PPF. I enjoyed all that you shared with us today.
