Works

Here my attempts, in reverse chronological order. I'm currently practising imitating watercolor paintings I find online. Less frequently, I try to reproduce photographs.

This time I include various phases of the execution to document the process. After half the drawing was complete (2) I started trying to render reflections on the water (it's supposed to be a lake landscape). At this point a number of things went wrong: I failed to moisture the paper sufficiently; I tried to use a clean brush to absorb color in horizontal lines (giving the illusion of water ripples, and adding depth to the composition) but it didn't work; I didn't wait for the color to dry before trying to amend errors with other strokes of paint… and other orrible things.
