Down by the lake! by ArtBYbeverly Down by the lake! by ArtBYbeverly
My son really likes this one...a watercolor and one of my very first ones done a long time ago...lol. I only use watercolors now as an underpainting for my pastel paintings....but I like this because it's colorful, and I didn't do a half bad job of the rock either!

REF. MATERIAL: Art book, but depicted by me.
SURFACE: Arches watercolor block, acid free
MEDIUM: Windsor & Newton watercolors
SIZE: 12x16 inches

I can see why your son loves this! - I was just reading your profile, your tribute to your family, (such a fine tribute! :)  ) and this was under one of his favorites works or yours, I had to come and have a look, naturally. :hug: Well done Bev!

I love your choice of colors. The reds in the water add nice contrast as opposed to just using another blue. It's so much better than anything lots of people could do (myself included). I can't put my finger on what exactly catches my eye because all of it is just grabbing my attention, down to the smallest details. Whatever you did to make this so beautiful, you did it right ^^

That is the loveliest comment I've had for this painting, I appreciate that very much and I learned so much from this earlier watercolor, that helps me with my present work. For me, I love the colors in this painting because they are not muddied, and are pretty true to the real shades, right from the tube almost lol.

Thank you once again for your kind words :huggle:
