THE WOOD ON DELPH LANE REVISITED – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1020803(1)a

I must admit that I was inspired by the texture I got on my previous painting that I put out on my last post  and so I decided to try and apply the splattering techniques to a scene I had done before in the hope that I would get a less staid outcome.

Well there is a lot of splatter on this but the outcome was less than I had hoped for. Perhaps I could have put the tree trunks and branches in whilst the paper was wet. I also did the splatter in two sections, one for the canopy leaves and one for the undergrowth. I also lost the translucency and the light coming through which I had in the earlier watercolour. So back to the drawing board – sorry about the pun.

  1. I’ve been experimenting with splatter in watercolour too recently. I find watercolour paintings come together much faster than acrylic, and that you can be a lot more spontanious. It is also interesting to see how the paint flows and how there are happy accidents that end up looking beautiful.

  2. Thanks Shawn. For me it takes time planning my watercolours before putting paint to paper, working out the sequence of applications. Once I’ve decided that I suppose it can flow and there are always the happy accidents, although I have had a few car crashes too.
