This looks cool Caesar :)

Thank You dear Amanda! I can do almost everythong with watercolours now that i discovered quite a number of tricks, but highly speedy, unplanned (see by progressively painting around a vague idea), no reference watercolours could hardly have better results from my present painting capabilities ...

Half closing the eye could perhaps make the feeling a little better, dear Greeneyes! Thanks a lot!

Glad You like this style too, dear Evart! Thank You!

Another fine and lovely painting.

Especially now that You had such a snowy winter, dear Katie!;):D
My country (my imagination is affected by our views) is not just sun and sea and warm weather at all, but in a way it's still a warm and inviting place, hopefully for some other decades ...
Thank you very much!

Thank you, dear Kahlid! I'm not a landsape painter, a genre where You are a master (I don't even know which kind of painter I am), but You ca bet I love nature and nice human architectures and settlements ...

Very kind of You to say so, Dear Paul! I started it after I saw Alien's first attempt with watercolour. I tried to quickly double-check that my tips where right with another watercolour landscape painting after sometime.

That is a fantastic painting Caesar, that is what I want to do, I will try to get as good as that. Practice Practice practice!

Wonderful, almost transparent colors.:eek:

Ceasar, nice watercolors... it reminds me of European castles, usually situated on the hill, as your village is... Pretty inviting place..:-)

Oh, Caesar....I think you've found your artist niche...watercolors! This is just so beautiful and exudes such emotion especially with the wonderful color palette you've chosen!

Got a good one here Caesar.. I like this a lot..

Thank You, dear Alien23!
My initial mistake was to follow the real waterciolour pocedures.
My preference for wet on wet added to the difficulty.There are effects You have to get differently, I learbed. Masking by selecytio is important here. Use of eraser gives You the possibility to paint over again darker tones without diluting them (instead than using dry on wet). When You use dry, often higher thinner and wet paper may be better. Finally sufficient metallic is a more controllable way then very limited stroke length, to give to watercolour some texture.

Thank You, dear Oriane!
This is what i love particularly of watercolour and searched for also on AR2.5 by overthinning oil in many cases.

Right dear AT-TA. Among many other historical periods architectures, we've also got plenty of middle age castles and villages in Italy on hills and mountains too. Thank You!

Dear Eileen, I realized that as well. Curiously my preferred tools to express quick creativity moments (and maybe best outcomes) are to the extremes: watercolours (the most delicate and subtle colour glazes) and drawing (the most solid and tonal images). Thank You.

Dear Rick, I'm particularly proud whenever one of my works meet Your taste and You like it. Thanks my friend!

Cesare this is wonderful

Thank You, dear SCP. Wit imaginary paintngs such as this one, I have just a vague starting idea on the subject and then let the strokes drive me progressively to see more and more ....

Dear Valerie, I'm glad You like this transparent, delicate and luminous style watercolour can provide .... Thank You!

Cesare, I had the pleasure of viewing your painting this weekend, but was never able to comment. I would go to type and I would be called away. Finally I gave up until I was able to get the computer all to myself.
This is lovely. I could imagine easily walking through the streets of this lovely village in the mountains!:):):):):):)
