I’m loving David Bellamy’s watercolors. For me, it’s exciting to work with a very limited palette, and so on Sunday morning I created this mountain scene before we left to visit my sister. Quick update: She’s still very sick, and we don’t know the cause yet.
I did this mostly as a practice piece to work on shading. I was happy with it at first, and then I started tweaking it, and I finally tweaked it too much. As a result I’m not all that happy with the final results, but it serves as a good reminder to finish a painting and then walk away.
In the future, I’d like to do more mountain peaks and work more on shading. This was a good start.
