Getting a new perspective, watercolor on paper mounted on board by 

This is a watercolor on paper mounted on board. Until now I have been using a layering technique with watercolors mostly for portraits because I find this is a great way to convey the subtle tones of skin and to avoid hard edges. For this subject I want to try that technique to paint the clouds and the sea.

Paper Arches, cold press 140 lb
From a picture I took in west Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

I grew up in France but have been living in Canada for the last 12 years, I am currently located in North Vancouver and work from a studio on Pemberton Avenue.

I have two passions:
- Painting the effects of light with watercolor on paper through portraits and cityscapes
( http://www.watercolorpainting.ca/ and http://www.yupopaperpainting.com/ )
- Building complex textures and edges with acrylics and mixed media on canvas (http://www.mixed-media-paintings.com)

    It works for me! I love the contrast you created with the very soft sky, versus the sharply defined boats.

  • Thanks F.A :)
