Owen Sound Sunset by kach-back Owen Sound Sunset by kach-back
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:

Thank you very much, and for the :+fav: of it as well. It was part of a silent auction for a fundraiser for a cancer charity of a young girl with terminal brain cancer, so I hope it raised some money for their cause. :-)

Thank you, I have just donated this painting (framed) for an auction to raise money for cancer research. The young child of one of my co-workers has terminal brain cancer, and they are holding an event in her honour this coming weekend. I am hoping the painting helps raise money for their cause. :-)

They did very well with the event and raised over $50K so far. I am not sure what the painting of mine went for though. :D

Thank you very much, I find that watercolour takes more planning then other media, and is less forgiving as well, but it can yield some truly unique and distinct effects and results.

yeah well...a brat i might be, (not quite sure about that though :lmao: ) but what i do know for sure is this;

A friend is very very valuable Warren.
An artist friend (the one who will offer honest critique with respect and knowledge of your work and your ways with the brushes) is Priceless. It appears that this is what i am to you. I may not make things always easy for you but you can trust i am telling you the truth (sadly only in my point of view but this is something too, right? ) and if you trust my ways with the brushes too then you have found in me a soul mate in art.Hug

You are so right, that a friend is a very valuable person to have in your life. To have an artist friend that will honestly and fully study my work and then offer opinions and suggestions is indeed priceless. You are most definitely that to me (and more). I don't want you to make things easy for me, I want you to help make me better and improve my skills, with my brushes. I know without any doubt at all that you are always telling me the truth about my work, and I think it's ideal that it is from your point of view. My trust for your ways with the brushes is without question, or any hesitation at all, so in you I definitely have found my soul mate in art. :heart:
