11″ × 5″ Schminke watercolours on smooth Arches watercolour paper

I’m still a total beginner when it comes to watercolours so this was a bit of an experiment this morning.

This is one of the views looking across the road from my place in the afternoons.

    Great job, Dianne. Your earthy gold and coffee colors are beautifully offset by the blue sky.

  • Thanks Frannie! Watercolours are always a challenge for me because I have to work in completely the opposite way to pastels. It’s fun trying new things though :)

    you did really well Dianne..a successful experiment and this tree stands very proud and tall indeed!

  • Thanks Linda! I figured that the only way I’m going to get better at watercolours is to actually give them a go :)

    Well if this is your beginner’s efforts, then you’re quite well, it’s very lovely work Dianne.

  • Thanks Jim. I was completely “winging” it so actually surprised that it came out ok. Sooo much still to learn about watercolours :)
