Owen Sound Sunset by kach-back
Owen Sound Sunset
This is a painting of a sunset at Owen Sound, Ontario. I was there this past summer doing work, and I had the opportunity for a few photos one evening, and therefore the reference photo is my own.

I used Winsor & Newton transparent watercolours, and it was painted on an Arches Watercolour Block, Cold Pressed 100% Cotton, 31 x 41 cm (12 x 16 in).

- Edit - 

:iconxrls: Made the observation that the bottom half of the painting looked very clean and smooth, and the top half (the sky), looked rough by comparison. Now she did say I could refer to her as a "brat" for pestering me about my sky, but when I looked at it I agreed that she was very correct. So I did something I never do and that is I went back into this painting, and did two separate re-washes on the sky to adjust it. This is now how it looks, thank you very much Christina for pointing it out. :heart:
Flooded by kach-back
This is a painting of where the Seine River flows into the Red River in the springtime in Winnipeg. The reference photo for this is my own, and I will admit this was an odd scene to paint due to the limited colour pallet, and the challenge of all that was going on with it. I am hoping that viewers of it can sense the depth of the scene and the infinite complexity of nature as it presents itself before us.

I used Winsor & Newton transparent watercolours, some white gouache (for highlighting), and it was painted on an Arches Watercolour Block, Cold Pressed 100% Cotton, 31 x 41 cm (12 x 16 in).

I managed to somehow delete this by accident so I have re-uploaded it.
Just a quick note here tonight.  I have begun the process of removing my website, favoring it for a Facebook Business page instead.

Seeing as I am not a full time artist at the moment I decided that going with a Facebook Business page was better, and suited my needs just a bit more.

I will still be active on dA, and I have a watercolour coming up to finish, many acrylics, and I will get back to pencil crayons, and even watercolour pencils this year.

Here is my URL which now points to my Facebook page:…

Please take a look and if you have any suggestions for me please do send them on, I would appreciate that. :-) 

  • Mood: Seasonal
