Boy you are a very talented lady,love the paintings,very impressive.I'm very visual,would love to see how you build up your painting.I was taking fine arts,I was so missed up ,the prof had me thinking so much when applying color that I had to quit.I'm to natural,I guess I'm a realist-what I see I paint.Iprobably labor to much.I really loved Ken Danby's painting,or Norman Rockwell.I think photography is the way to go for me,because it is more immediate!When I'm in nature I'm always moving and composing.I feel it like a art,even with music.It's such a natural rush. Nice to talk to you,thanks for the favorite,talk again!

Hi Glen
I have done a progressive on my website for my acrylic painting Cloisonné vase: [link]
I do my watercolours in much the same way, working from top to bottom, finishing each section as I go. In The Captain, Sorrento, I started by completely masking out the boat and the pelican and did the sea in layers, masking out the patterns in the water, progressively in each layer. Then, when the sea was finished, I did the boat and pelican, working from one side to the other, starting with the pelican and completely finishing it and then doing the boat.
I am about to start the next Mornington painting, I will photograph each stage as I do it, then post it on my website with a link. It will be a watercolour too and I will probably mask the stairs first and put in the background.
I can see what you mean about moving and creating and composing in nature and how it's a natural rush. And you do it so very well, your passion for your art shows in what you produce.
Freda

Thanks Freda,I would really appreciate that,progressing in painting.I know watercolor is a harder medium to master.I really like water color.I like the ideas of how you can work from light to dark!I know there are little tricks like using rubber cement to mask areas!I really appreciate the time you took to reply.and thank you for the compliment coming from you
it has substance.Thank you again your friend from not to cold Canada Glen M.
ps Have you ever tried airbrush(a beautiful medium,alot of templates and masking)

Many years ago, when I worked as a commercial artist, I used an airbrush to retouch photos, but I haven't used one recently.
I did sign up for an art airbrush class last year, but the tutor moved it to Monday nights and that's when I run a life drawing sketch group and so couldn't make it.

One day, I may get to do it.

Trust me you will love it.You can then do airbrush art on T-shirts for your friends!
It is a really neat medium,and very free!I was so addicted that I was saving anything and everything for templates.
Just talking about it ,I just pull out my airbrush again.Have a great week,take care!

It's gorgeous. Your painting abilities are remarkable! :heart: I adore how crisp and realistic this is, and the attention you paid to getting the shadows on the petals just right. This is the sort of botanical illustration that would be excellent in a textbook, because it's so detailed and believable in addition to being beautiful.

Love it! :D Great work!

Beautiful!

Also like your discovery that white flowers on a white background can be made to work. That gives it a very clean fresh look.

The watercolor itself is stunning as always, you are a wizard with watercolor!
