Hello! I'd like to share a watercolor painting i made, my first watercolor commission.
There are many places in the Philippines with waterfalls and mountains and stuff. Really nice :D
I Am not used to watercolor at all, this was my first try. Im glad it turned out okay! I cant say I can give any tips at all cause I, just new at this.
here are the work in progress photos :)
I just painted directly without sketching base colors, light colors
then I just layered dark tones for depth
Then I used light blue and yellow and green (taupe) for the water and rocks
here I put fleshtone plus a lil yellowgreen and brown.
This is the end result!
I did face problems like
-Build up of the paint since i used powder based watercolor
-creating depth by layering without making the water look black or dark
-i didnt have a white pen or opaque white paint that could totally make the foam or shine realistic or more wet
But atleast now i know.
I am happy with the outcome :D
She was happy to revieve a painting of her , and thats just such a good feeling!
hope you enjoyed this post! :D upvote and resteem or simply follow if you like my art :D
