Thanks for the enthusiasm! Yes, I have been doing it for awhile, but only in recent years I have had enough time to focus on my art. Make sure you have really good paint and really good paper. I know people try to save money thinking 'I'll use this till I get better', but it's almost impossible to get better with bad materials. The next most important thing is to be bold and experiment a lot, Also, watercolor paints do a lot of exciting, maybe unexpected, things on the paper. Dont treat it as an error, make use of it, incorporate it in the final result. Watercolor is a wonderful medium if you give it a descent chance, like a duet between you and the painting
This is amazing. I was scrolling through the group and this immediately caught my eye. I am not usually a fan of water colors but you have changed my mind on the potential of this medium. This is outstanding and you should be very proud!
Thanks for your wonderful comment! It's particularly rewarding as I used to have a low opinion of watercolors too, till I encountered the bold and free paintings of the 'california style'. Watercolor doesnt have to be wishy-washy
Great!!!And I thought first that it is my native village)))I was born and raised in the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in the Crimea,my father-astronomer.And there among the many telescopes have one exactly like this one in Your picture!)))))
I think photos of space also have this 'underwater' feeling. Perhaps because the stars/nebulas seem to float in space, with nothing to hold them in place. Only things on the ground seem bound by gravity...
