Title: Raindrops on Window done in Watercolor
Post by: TennMom on October 08, 2017, 02:13:29 PM
This is my attempt to do Nolan's 'Raindrops on window' class in water color.  There are some things I would probably do differently - maybe go a little darker and not have the droplets all the same size - but all in all, I am pleased, and I have satisfied myself that it can be done fairly easily but patiently.  I have a painting I am working on with a cat in the window, so this class, even though in oil, was a great lesson and a big help.

Thank you Val, thank you Dennis, and thank you Kathy.  This was a fun piece to do.  I can't wait to see how my other raindrop painting goes.

I think I'm finished with my watercolor cat in the window with raindrops.  Please feel free to critique as I want to enter it into a show, and you all are always so helpful.

WOW - this cat painting is fantastic! So glad you're entering it into the show. I'm sure Val will let you borrow her crystal ball - it's worked wonders for me! Fingers crossed - please let us know what happens!

Thank you Sharon.  I have to get juried in first, so I'll let you all know how it goes.

This is the other painting that I hope to get juried into the show (2 allowed).  I think I am finished with water drops for a while.  Nolan's rain on the window class was so helpful in this endeavor.

Linda, congratulations on making it into the show.
Love the cat painting, too.

Now that class is definitely on my immediate 'to do' list.
