An evening of abstract landscapes

I have another round of watercolor landscapes to share today.

Happyย  Thursday, friends! ๐Ÿ’™

I started off working in my 7 x 10 inch watercolor sketchbook.

Using a large round brush (#12), I wet the paper with some clean water. Then dipped my damp brush into the paint and applied the color in large bold strokes. The wet paint on wet paper creates a nice bleed and color movement. Watching the color move across the paper is always very exciting.

In both paintings I used a limited palette of three colors: Prussian Blue, Yellow Ochre, and Payne’s Gray.

For the second painting, I used an 11 x 15 inch piece of watercolor paper. I decided to go a little larger with this one. Painting on large paper is a different experience. There’s more room to be expressive and have fun with your brush and that feels great. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, stay safe and be well!
