Behind the scenes – Preview

Here is a sneak preview of a big watercolor I started today. This piece is kind of an “experiment.” I’ve never painted a watercolor this big (30x22in; 76x56cm). I’m also applying the paint in a way that combines watercolor and oil painting. Unlike watercolor,

  • I am not painting big areas of solid color.

  • I am mixing some colors on the paper (not before I use them).

  • My painting is standing upright instead of lying down.

The last point is interesting and has caused me to make some adjustments; mainly not using as much water as I normally would over a large area. All of this combines to give it a different “look.” We shall see what happens.

On a ski trip in Kaprun, Austria. I’m not skiing, just drawing. This is a view of Zeller See (Lake Zell) in Zell am See, the “big” town nearby Kaprun. Mountain drawing tomorrow? We’ll see! Will I ski tomorrow!!!
