Simple Landscape

A simple landscape artwork based on Peter Saw's online tutorial. Mine is added with some personal styles so it became a variation of Peter Saw's original painting.


Actually its a study on using 'granulation'- a characteristic inherent in certain pigments found in colors like ultramarine and light red.

Granulation can be used to create forms and texture in a watercolor painting.

from many art observations of other accomplished artwork, i believe mental logic does not come into play sometimes. art is more related to how does it influence the heart/feeling/emotion of a person.

I like this one as with most of the watercolors you've posted, I've seen. I'd like to see more subjects you have chosen from your environment not associated with a tutorial or someone else's work. To me, you are well on your way to becoming an accomplished painter. I would comment more on some of your postings but I don't think I'm qualified since I just recently successfully stretched a sheet of watercolor paper. One small observation...I wonder about the clouds touching the mountains in the background on the right side of the painting. Since you've used aerial perspective and painted the mass of clouds with more intense tone, that part that drains into the mountains takes away from the effect. Also, what are the dimensions of the painting?
