I have enjoyed watercolour paintings for a very long time.

These are two miniatures I painted years ago of the

panies and polyanthus growing in my garden ~ Watercolour  "wet in wet" technique

Re: Art

Wow @TallTrees , those are great! The blue and yellow one on the right - I can see so many different things in that painting, and not just flowers. It's interesting how you can interpret art in so many different ways as someone mentioned above. Smiley Happy

@TallTrees 

Totally agree with @Marjo , I love the painting on the right. It`s as though there is much more than just the flowers... Brilliant. You should sell your works of art @TallTrees .

 

And thanks @WispaRed7 for this lovely thread.

Absolutely beautiful @TallTrees  ... the blue in each painting is the same and the pictures look well framed and placed together

You have a good eye for these things TallTrees smiling

I'm guessing 'wet on wet' technique is where you wet the paper, stretch it and tape it to a 'painting board' ... = ... I am not trained in painting, but did enjoy the tv programme 'Watercolour Challenge'

My style is semi-abstract in the art I appreciate

There is a dedicated art shop in town ... I have recently found a good set of brushes in a folder (never been used, yet) ... my small tin of watercolours will probably be in my old wooden desk in my workroom

 

Thank you @TallTrees  @Mi-Amigo  and @Marjo  for your kind comments about this thread I started after public discussion rainbow

Re: Art

Hi @WispaRed7
Thank you for your kind comments. I quite like wet in wet it's a technique where the paper is wet not very wet, then control the paint putting it on - it then bleeds together. Quite heavy watercolour paper is needed for this.
No need to tape paper as heavy paper stays straight.
I very much like charcoal sketching too rubbing and working the charcoal with finger to get effects !! great its mucky🤭😊

@TallTrees 

As you enjoy charcoal sketching, I found charcoal sketches by April Coppini
