Painting Textures

The rocks, hills and mountains of Colorado are beautiful.

I painted in a series of horizontal strokes in both a thin and thick stroke. Then I stamped patterns and…well this won’t make the book.

Definitely keep the lines and get rid of the texture. A much finer line is needed. I could use different line widths and shapes. Make the background one smooth color. Use various transparencies.

Yeah this texture doesn’t say calm and peace. Seems unpredictable and unstable. Creating textures is fun and you never know what will happen. That’s the beauty of watercolor.

I love the simple lines I painted days ago.

I have all these stories and use color, texture and nature to bring them to life. My favorite supplies are watercolor, acrylic, and fun tools. I just want to create.
