A Couple Of Interesting Ideas

I have a lot of fun doing these quick, little watercolour studies.  It’s a chance to practice ideas with minimal pressure.  I just glance over my photos and the first one that catches my interest gets painted!  

 

A Glance On Stephan Ave

This  one had really interesting architectural shapes and a neat attitude from the subjects.  When I painted it I liked everything except the figures. They were completely  lost in the background.  Since it was a failed painting, at that point, I decided it was gouache to the rescue!  The figures were completely redone in gouache. 

River & Osborne: Waiting To Get Home

This one came about very accidentally.  I took the photo with my iPad on a bright, sunny day. The iPad created a whole different feeling.  It was a blast to try and keep it wet and atmospheric.
