Full sheet (22" x 30") Arches cold press 140# watercolor paper, Daniel Smith paints.
Looking through my photos after reading a bit in my latest Watercolor magazine, I thought about big skies and the photos of big skies I have. What to choose next?
I picked this one that shows a very cold, lowering sky that looked and felt like it could snow (in September) at any moment. And I liked the complements of the blue-greys and the orange-browns so...
This photo, taken in Yellowstone National Park, was chosen for my next attempt.
And I started with a full sheet Arches 140# cold press, finding a big brush to touch in the colors lightly, middle to bottom and then middle to top, turning it upside down and working on each area separately. I need a bigger brush that is soft and holds lots of water - any suggestions?
I want to work lightly and build up those darks slowly. We'll see if my impatience allows me to do that!
Testing the waters with full sheet paintings before my roll of paper arrives...and then I'll be playing in the BIG TIME! ha ha
