Watercolor Paintings: Painting Without Reference Photos

So, I would consider it a development. That I have painted some landscapes without any reference photos and paintings are not bad, I think. However, I would not encourage myself to do that often.

I always need a reference photo to paint. When it comes to painting, my imagination is very limited, so yes I would call it a development.

Sharing some of my paintings that I painted without any reference photo.



Also, I have started to feel comfortable painting on large sized paper. OK, not that large but A4 size. I usually painted on A5, as earlier I didn't feel confident enough to try on A4. These two paintings are on A4 size paper, without any reference photo.



So, what do you think?

  9. I have to agree there is an importance to have a reference especially when drawing/painting still life and things within nature. Your watercolours are amazing.
