    Your doing very good. I agree that watercolor is very difficult media. It takes a lot of patience and planning. I like using water color with colored pencils and ink. It adds depth and a more finished look.

    I like that idea! I have tried to stick to what the teacher asks us to do , without straying too far and adding my own things. For now, I want to try and learn some control and discipline (what's that?) so that I might have the skill to do some things I can't already do. I do, however, like watercolor pencils. I posted a bunch of pictures I did with them that are fun, but NOT disciplined.

    Riding on the beach

    When Showjumperachel posted this photo a while back I knew that I wanted to try painting it. The action, the angle and odd color shift toward blue are very attractive to me. Unfortunately, I can not see her face at all , so it is just basically a blur in the painting.
    This is the first painting I've done in months, and I felt like I was using atrophied muscles.

    After getting half way through, I saw how badly mispositioned the front right leg was, but I decided to continue a ways. Then , I decided to try again. The second attempt is not finished. I hope it is better proportioned.

    Good changes to his head and that leg. Background is much better too. Your determination is awesome!

    Its becoming a disaster! It always seems that when I redo, it is worse~!!!!

    ARGH! I don't even want to finish it. I will, and i'll post it, but it majorly sucks.

    I don't even want to post the second attempt on that beach scene. However, I did something better!
    I saw this photo on a thread, and copied and saved it. I get a ton of inspiring photos from folks here.clava's daughter - Copy.jpg

    Then I thought, it would make a cool painting , but cropped like this, with more focus on the little girl's face:

    And here is my painting, where I chose to keep it very light. I was going to put in the dark background, but I was already straying into "overworked" land, so opted to STOP, while it was still good. I am very, very happy with this one.clava's daughter painting- Copy.jpg

    That is really lovely - I hope you can find time to do something for me on the same lines as the two I already have.
