In My Search!!

In my never ending quest for looser style painting, I'm using a slightly different technique, and so far I'm ok with it. There's much room for improvement and I'm working on it.  I truly like and admire photo-realism and I try for that in my pencil work..
However for watercolor... I want to achieve something different.

  4. It looks good BJ and I love the glowing colours. It looks like you are trying to use just one layer of wash as much as possible, and it's working well.

  9. BJ,

    You are a great painter, no matter the style you choose. It's all great. I love this, color, composition and textures. And you most certainly achieved the effect of a looser style. Well done.

  11. Loose, a style I admire and aim for too. I spent sometime today looking through the entries of the TWCSA and commented to my husband that they were mostly photographic or pretty close to and hardly a splash or dribble to be found. Is it not fashionable in shows I wonder

  12. It's really lovely, Barbra Joan. The greens are beautiful, and the variety of yellow-oranges is super!

  13. By George, you've got it! Barbra Joan, this is beautiful. I must say, though, I would not describe your previous work as photorealism. It is not as loose as this one, but it's very painterly. All that you do is such a lovely reflection of your spirit.

  14. Your right Mary, my realism work comes out more in my graphite/pencil.
    That's why I'm trying for impressionistic in my watercolor.. Not easy though to get in between the fine line of loose and childs play.
    You have managed it oh so well.
