Fall Picnic by lemonflower Fall Picnic by lemonflower
I finally painted a family, even though I'm usually (I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry) all about that waif. I soothed myself with plaids. I feel blah about this, even though I'm using my usual ingredients, but SHRUG. What's done is done.

Watercolor & digital.

Aww it's so adorable! I know I've said this before, but I am still baffled at how perfect your watercolor skills are. Even though you enhance the colors digitally, it must take some real patience to get all that smoothness. I recently got back into them and I am finding it really hard to get a smooth wash, no matter how light it is! I just tried to paint a sky and it had all these streaks and darker areas. Anyway, I really love this. Great job, as always.

Have you tried a heaver paper? I used to only use 140 cold press and it stays damp for a long time, so you can achieve really smooth washes! Unfortunately that rough finish also scans poorly. Also, how do you pre-trait your paper? I wet my thoroughly at the sink and then staple it to plywood, so when it dries it stretches taut.

That's a great idea to staple it down; thanks so much for the advice! :D I usually just wet the paper with a big brush, and even when I tape it down to something, it still crinkles up. I will have to try the stapling thing and get some heavier paper. I've always been kind of a cheapskate when it comes to art supplies, but I'm beginning to realize it may be worth it to invest in some better paper.

Definitely! I had a teacher say once to buy cheap paint, but invest in paper and brushes (plus I buy the big sheets of watercolor paper - it might cost $5 but I easily get 5 paintings out of it).
