Lady in red hat OR catus with red flower :)

 Continuing to paint imaginary landscapes. Two disasters.
On the top painting the use of watercolourcrayons is a way
of trying to save it from dissaster. I suppose this way of working 
is something that you have to do now and then as allmost 
EVERYTHING can happen when you paint with watercolour.
Atleast when you are a beginner as I am!

My daughter thinks that the lady with red hat on the bottom 
painting looks like a cactus with a red flower  hahaha. Well, I told 
you that I am a total failier at painting people!!
The bottompainting is not quite that blue at the frontside of the 
mountain. The computer does that somehow. It is the Ultramarin
that shines through in the mixture of permanent rose and ultramarin
when the layers are thicker. But it doesn´t show much in the real
painting.







I´m so happy for your visit and I LOVE reading your comments!
Wellcome back!

  3. I like the soft, delicate colors of the first one, and the nice, gradual purples in the second. There is something good in most paintings, and there is always something to learn form each one. Just keep painting and have fun!

  5. Well I think that you might see a cactus if you look really hard, but I see only a woman with a red hat, and I like what I see !

  7. It's exciting that you're painting from your own imaginations, and also from your own interpretation of all the lovely scenery your mind has captured in your life. I can see all that in the colors that you chose and the shapes and forms they make together. I admire your skills with watercolor... I think that is the most challenging medium any artist can use! Lovely pieces, Catharina!

    1. Well ...about beginner...thank you John. ;) One thought popped up in my mind right now. This about being a beginner or consider yourself as a beginner; maybe we should think instead that we are on the way of finding our STYLE and that we are not really there yet, and therefore are not completely happy about our achievement in painting yet, because we see it as a failier when we can´t paint in a surtain way. We MUST remember that we are all different from eachother, and we have different styles. One style is not wrong compared to another style, just different. It is about LIKING your own way of painting. And offcourse to try different tecniques that can help you finding your own style in a way that you can like your own art enough to feel completely satisfied about it.

    2. I couldn't agree with you more and I guess it's more about our own perception than that of others. I still think of myself as a beginner but I fist picked up a brush in 1999. You'd think I shouldn't have moved on from 'beginner' by now. LOL. As you say, it's all about liking our OWN way.

  12. Catharina I see a lady bending down wearing a red hat. Little clue for you: concentrate on the positives. We all can see negatives in our own work but we need the confidence to work on the next painting so we learn from the negatives but we ignore them. We can only do the best we can in that moment. It will get better and I do not class you as a beginner. You have some lovely bits in both. I love the layering, your colour choices and your soft style. You have the touch but not the time to practice perhaps. Just have fun and lots of it. xx

    1. I will try to remember to focus on the good in every painting Laura, so that I can use the good in next painting. Offcourse you are soo right Laura. Thank you for your wise words. :) And I have just started painting again after a long absence, I must remember that. I am slowly remembering different techniques that I completely forgot about after all this time away from art.
      Thank you again for your visit and support!
