..This was an attempt to depict the mist in this photo taken in Kemmangundi after a heavy downpour and the sun about to set.
size : 1/4 imperial
time taken : 2.5 hrs
The idea was to paint loose and quicker than our usual pace.
Initially I struggled with the wet-on-wet. resulted in cauliflowers and frustrations..
Adding a darker tone seemed to lift off the lower layers !
I am not sure why ? and I seemed to blame the paper for it :)
I used a canson montval paper.
Any suggestions please..
I tried the same mix on a test paper : Arches aquarelle - rough grain.
On this sheet, wet-on-wet was a lot under control..
I am not sure though, as the test sheet was only 6" x 8" ..and size does matter
I liked this quickie more than the normal one..and this one took me just 10 minutes :)
