View Full Version : My Latest Painting

Iíve been on a watercolouring course today and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I came away with a finished painting that I can frame and hang on my wall. That is if I can find any space. I feel the need to trat myself every so often and the good thing about these courses is that you get to bring something home.
Iíve added it to my blog as itís too big to put on this site.

Gosh, thanks so much to you all. I love the painting too and I'm really glad that you all like it. I'd better get it framed now and put it on the wall.

Well done Yvonne, thats a very accomplished painting for a first attempt at watercolour.
Most people are afraid of watercolours because they think if they make one tiny mistake the painting is ruined. There are many techniques for correcting mistakes. So dont hold back, have a go just like Yvonne has, you will be suprised by your results.
Yvonne, I love the way you have used the wet in wet for the sky so the clouds bleed into one another, giving that whispy effect and the peachy tint like a summer sunset sky. The trees on each side of the painting frame the scene well and balance it too, The road and the fencing are drawing your eye into the picture and leading you to the house/barn. The paler bluey green of the distant trees give depth, (I would have made them a little more blue myself) but that depth also draws the eye into the back of the scene. The perspective is enhanced by the fencing and is very well done. All in all a good painting, one you ought to be proud of.
I hope that it is the first of many.

ooh I just love your painting and all of your cards!! they are sooo pretty.

I know what you mean about lots of flowers though, the majority of my things are floral, it's always the first thing that comes into my head!!

Good luck with the watercolouring.

Hi Creative Spirit.

I had just better clear up the misunderstanding that this was my first painting. I've painted lots before this one. I haven't been for a while as my teacher died and this was a one-off class. We painted in the style of the artist who taught us and she likes very vibrant colours so we did them too.

I've been to another class for acrylics so I'll put that on soon. It is my first painting in theat medium.
