In yesterday’s post I talked about my awful watercolor. I was planning to paint something new — and hopefully better — and as so often happens, my plans didn’t quite work out. So, I figured I’d go ahead and post my awful painting.
It was another mountain scene practice, and I was never really sure what I wanted to do with it. My rosy red skies were a big disappointment. None of the colors worked well together, so rather than spend more time adding anything else, I called it done and set it aside.
At one point I entertained thoughts about painting a little hamlet in the foreground area. I was having problems figuring out the right height and width, though, so I left it as an open field. What suggestions would you have for adding to the foreground?
One thing I do like about the painting is the tree line. I think I’m getting better at creating a more “realistic illusion” — or is that an oxymoron? I also liked the partial tree in the right corner.
As for the ugly colors…that’s part of the learning experience. Sometimes things work; sometimes they don’t.
All suggestions will be appreciated!
