Painting with clear water...



Dit is een deel van een ander wilgenschilderij, om je te laten zien hoe ik de takken heb geschilderd.
Eerst heb ik de takken met schoon water geschilderd en dan heb ik aan de basis van de takken verf toegevoegd. Daarna heb ik het papier scheef gehouden zodat de verf meer naar de toppen liep. Ik vind het effect erg mooi. Hoewel de rest van het schilderij niet zo mooi was. :)
Ben nog aan het denken over de knoop.

This is part of another willow painting, to show you how painted the branches.
First I painted the branch shapes with clear water and then I dropped paint at the base of the branches. I then tilted the paper to  make the paint run more to the tips. I think the effect is beautiful. Though the rest of the painting was not. :)
Still thinking about the knot.

  2. It's a lovely painting and a great technique too! In a couple of months the trees here will all look like this. The leaves have just begun to turn colour and fall :0)

  17. Thanks, Judy, for the revelation :)
    I would be curious to know how much of the 'waiting time" you have when working on a watercolor picture. I heard that it's usually a lot. (I need to work on my patience!)
    Have a lovely day!

  18. Dankje Hanneke, ik twijfelde een beetje bij dit schilderij, maar wou de techniek graag laten zien.

    Thank you Susan!

    Hi Lucia, yes, watercolour involves a lot of waiting. Or use a hairdryer!

  20. I think the entire painting is beautiful.
    As for the knot, maybe some [a few, two or three] softened lines at the focal point???

  21. The ways of water are the joy of watercolorist! No other way of painting allows this freedom.
    I wish you a nice weekend, dear Judy!!!

  25. I like so much innuendo and tact of your painting manner. The way you mix colors and apply them almost like hints.
    I went to your site and was glad to see it was growing and spreading. Though I did not find "buy it!" button. Don't you think it is time for us to start commerce, why not? (I am afraid, too)

  26. Thank you Pat, Dana and Irina!

    I am not a very commercial person, Irina, and I don't know how to install a Buy-button. :) But people can always contact me, and on a handful occasions I sold a painting. I do get questions about lessons sometimes, and I am thinking about doing that.

  27. That's a simple and beautiful technique to achieve this gradated transition from the base to the tip of the branch. I like the whole painting. It has this relaxing effect to me
