Your Watercolour Paintings › Going up in size

I’ve painted and posted first version of this scene not too long ago. And I thought first one turned out better. I typically paint on 1/8 of a sheet of paper. I’m pretty familiar with size and how much paint I need to mix. Sho going to 1/2 sheet is a bit of a challenge. Still. Here it is. Thanks for watching. So this is from a newspaper and image was poor quality and low saturation. That’s actually pretty good. I tried to recreate basic shape of the mesa. And my trees suck! I know.

Great painting! I like the colors and shadows.

Nice shadows and the trees look good to me. Deserts are beautiful subjects. Paint more.

I think this is excellent! I really like the shadows and the green areas and that bit of purple at the back. Your mesa is very good, too. 🙂

Thanks everyone! I will try to paint better next time.

Nice one, Alex and congratulations on having the courage to go large. I bet this looks simply magnificent at full size.

Awesome Alex! Did you use larger brushes when you chose to paint on a larger paper?

Hi Annette! It’s good to see you back. I did use larger brushes. I have few hake brushes I used for larger washes. Turned out they are pretty nice. I also have amerian journey interlocked nylon 1-1/2 wide and that one is pretty useless. Holds nice edge but no water in it.
