At the beginning of 2020 I had just picked up painting with watercolor and started binge-watching videos by James Gurney (http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com). Gurney is very fond of #Casein paint, which is somewhat between watercolor paints and acrylic paints. Long story short I ordered some paints - had to sign up for a painting contest because they aren't sold around here - then never really got to use them.
Following a youtube tutorial I arrived at this painting. Fairly happy. This was painted 2 days ago and I even like it better now than on the evening I painted it.
I think my cheap "White NIghts" watercolor set will be retired once I get the missing colors for my Royal Talens watercolors arrive. They just mix to the ugliest colours. Originally I thought I might use them for practice, esp. for colour mixing, but its just daunting with these.
Drawing with soft oil pastels with the kid. It's really fun to draw motives that one could have drawn in elementary school 😊
In case you wondered, this drawing is BY ME and not by my daughter.
Es malt/zeichnet sich schon ganz anders als mit Aquarell, manches ist einfacher (man kann hell auf dunkel malen) anderes schwieriger (gleichmäßiger Farbauftrag).
Der reiz scheint zu sein Werke zwischen Malerei und Zeichnung schaffen zu können. Mir gefällts.
