I have more landscape practice to share with you today.
Happy Thursday, friends! 💚
Mini landscapes are a great way to play and learn.
I used a pencil and ruler to divide my 7 x 10 inch watercolor page into four sections. This mini size is just perfect for playing with different colors and ideas.
Using the lower right landscape above as inspiration, I worked on a larger painting of countryside pines. I did switch a few things up in this larger piece and that’s ok. I think it worked out well.
Watercolor tip: The pines (or objects) that are further away should have less detail and be a lighter color. This helps create distance and depth.
This landscape was inspired by a picture from my daily calendar. I wanted to try something different with a pretty green countryside. I love the distant hills and am happy with the calm soothing feeling.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.
Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
