Thank you every one. I feel like I am making progress.
Karen for the dark cloud I mixed a very dark ultramarine blue added light red to make almost blue black. There may be some viridian as I was using that for the right side of the sky.

Well done, Harald  :clap: :clap: :clap: Your struggling has paid off dividends - very nice touch you have and the clouds are also nice and soft and summery. You are well on your way to becoming a watercolourist O0

I just can't wait to see what all of you will be producing by the end of the year :)  You are doing me proud.

Here is attempt number 2 , I washed number 1 off the paper


and here is number 7


If you notice, i changed the shape of the rock formation.. I changed it to protect Dennis. After class 9 on pen and ink washes, I heard some rumblings :cursing: from some animal rights groups that they where getting concerned about the amount of publicity Giraffes where getting compared to other African animals, So to maintain balance and avoid any angry demonstrations, I decided to include a Camel   :clown: :clown:

Also, ( in seriousness) i found I was (am) having problems recreating some colors, I asked my self, " what would Dennis do?" and decided to make a chart of every color on my pallet, showing it as" it self" and mixed with every other color on the pallet.   I divided a sheet of paper in to squares, across the top is listed every color AND down the side is listed every color. Then I made "swatches" in each square of the color listed in the top square and the one on the side.  Example"  viridian from the top row, shown by it self and then as i move down the column  mixed with cad red, cad yellow, cad orange lemon yellow, yellow ocher. etc.

Back to  :painting:
