Hello guys. I hope all are faring well. I wish to muse about this waterfall painting. Many of you felt you could hear the sounds of the waterfall. Some wanted to be in that painting😉😉.
This painting is watercolour with extensive layering. I didn’t use masking fluid to block the waterfall or white areas. I retained the white of the paper by carefully painting around the waterfall. The problem was that this paper differed from the usual one I painted. Hence, if I needed to be quicker, I could not blend the colours for the bottom part of the waterfall to get the misty effect. After three hours of painting, I was stressed. The other challenging areas were the swirls of water, the rocks, and to get the light on the grass. Finally, my teacher explained how I can get those effects😊😊.
Isn’t this the same with life? When we are facing challenges, if we could have a calm voice giving us some options, our worries melt away🤗🤗🤗🤗. The feeling is like sitting on the rocks and looking at the waterfall 🙏😊.
