Rusty Talent...

limited colours

It's been a good few months since I spent some time with watercolour paints and my first foray into the medium after this results in this pic. Putting it in a frame thankfully detracts from the 'schoolboy' art of the painting...

I used only a few 'basic' colours to keep things simple and it was a fun little experiment.

  1. I really like this painting for its colours and simplicity. Also your enjoyment of working it really shows through. A lovely use of wet watercolours so appropriate for the scene!

  2. Thank you Margaret for stopping by and for taking the effort to comment - I am truly grateful. I will be back to your blog to comment too when time permits. Thanks once again and all the best with your painting endeavours.

    You need to stop selling your self to short..It is lovely to those that have eyes to appreciate such things...If others cannot see it their loss...

    You do great work..So let us express it..stop downing your work.


  4. Ah Callie, you are so kind...lol
    I guess beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder...
    I write from an artist's perspective - knowing what I'm capable of (or what I had hoped the picture would look like) so when the finished result doesn't match up to that I can't help but be a tad "critical" (chuckles)
    But - I really appreciate your feedback and will concentrate on expressing the journey and techniques used - leaving the rest of the comments to the commentators. Keep well and thanks for taking the time to write... Peter

  5. I really love this painting--the colors are lovely; the little buildings pressed against the hill charming ... It's wonderfully wet, and "personal" in a way I think good watercolors should be.

  6. Hi Laura

    Thanks so much for your comment.

    I loved perusing your blog, and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the development of your "spaces" paintings.
    I love the idea of dividing a page into four and working on them simultaneously...

    Take care
