Hi All,

I have been trying some water color paintings over the last few weeks. The paintings are based on some reference books. Please give your opinion.

Matt, This site is extremely helpful and strong motivating factor :-)

Thanks!!

Hi Anila,

Thanks for sharing these beautiful watercolors!  I really like the way that you've handled the shadows on the barn with cool tonalities.  It really makes the highlights "pop" and makes the whole painting.   You are also creating some great depth by layering the colors.  You can really see this in the transparent glass.  You are also making some great compositional decisions with the way that you're handling the picture plane.  Thanks again for sharing!  ;D

These are really nice. I especially enjoy the vibrancy of the color in the last two. Keep sharing! :)
