Water color Technique with Acrylics.

I have had the book "ACRYLIC LANDSCAPES THE WATERCOLOR WAY by Charles Harrington" for quite some time now. After many reading and re-readings, I finally decided to try out the techniques described in the book. Happy with the end result, thought have a lot to improve on color mixing.

Landscape stuggles


One more attempt at trees and landscapes in general. Having trouble laying the graphite for the grass. I can't seem to get it neither as dark nor as even as I want. Am still working on it. Hopefully few more days of work will have some improvement.

Cherries

Cherries.... graphite on canson sketch paper.

Jade...

 Small Jade plants in my garden. The ceramic pot is just about the size of a small tea cup. Had a tough time trying to pot this plant. Only two of my fingers would fit into the pot at any one time.

Reactivating

Back to this blog after a gap of two years. Baby break. Hopefully will able to draw and post here more frequently. That is if my two year old lets me do it.
