Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting
Friday, August 26, 2011
Painting something as complex as ocean waves takes very close observation of color, value, and edges. It also takes patience. I think that 50% of a painting is just looking at your subject and looking at it deeply. That's the cool thing about artists...they look at the world visually deeply. I may have screwed up my english here by writing "visually deeply", but I think my 11 inch by 13 inch watercolor on 140lb. cold press Arches watercolor paper came out OK.
