This might be a scene in a restaurant where a bad situation is gonna get worse.

I think I had been watching The Godfather when this image popped into my brain. I think it's funny - it's meant to be.

I hope it gets seen also. This is the piece where I finally got the look of a real water color. I'm very proud of it, technically, as well.

Thanks so much, Irish! (By the way, if my grandma hadn't remarried, my last name would be Riley)

It looks as if one could just reach in and take the glass of delicious wine. Really nice Skylar. I hate to think of the one that is lying on the floor nearby.:eek:

I had a good chuckle at this when I finally saw the whole image. When the page loaded, I saw the navigation area on the screen, etc, the wine, the table and such and thought, ah, another romantic image. Lovely. Then I scrolled down, saw the gun and did a mental double take. Not that type of talk! Great picture!

Thanks Manna - When I was first learning AR (Bought it in August), I set everything wrong, and all my pieces looked absolutely Impasto. It took a lot of tinkering, and thinking to figure out that in real WC, it would be very thin, and watery (DUH) By setting thinning high, loading low, and pressure med to low, I found this look. Also discovered the on-off wet thing which lets you layer colors.

Great watercolor in AR (the one I liked best so far) - could you go a bit into detail how you layered the color - did you just use the dry paper brush and blend over with the wet blender? Is it all on 1 layer? how did you crank up the contrast of the paper texture that much? Sorry for being so "interested", but that painting certainly deserves curiosity :D!

Best regards!

I second this person, a lesson on your technique will help me too.

I would love that wine, put away the gun please, or do you intend to drink the wine without charge?:D

Pan- Yes, Yes, & Yes. Under paper settings go to custom and dial up Grain & Roughness to bet. 50 & 75% - I think that's what I did - it was a long time ago, and I don't write that sort of info down

Did I ever say that this was my First WC in AR (2.5)? It was.
