View Full Version : Just hanging around

This one is done in watercolour. I was testing out the layers and the group layers. Each element in the painting is done in a group with about three layers in it. I had fun with this one, but probably best not to have 5 groups, it gets a bit of a brain ache.

Well, I'll have to check out these groups Teresa. This is a very fine painting. It's a traditional style watercolor to me. Good job!

This watercolor exercise with the group of layers has become a very good painting.

Before I compliment....I must say....Poor Lee! I keep following him into the newest gallery submissions! LOL Looks like we are both seeing the same new threads! ;)

This is a super great painting Paper! It just makes me want to sit and watch those youthful boys playing and just being kids. Gives me a very happy feeling. :) Well done!

Nicely done Teresa! I have used group layers. I will have to check that out. The water color effect looks awesome in this. Great illustration!:D:D

Wow everyone! Thank a bunch. I thought I had this on an email follow but it didn't stick so I thought nobody liked it. I came in the see what other super paintings were being shown so I could get inspired, and wahay, everyone likes my painting!

Caesar: I just have to say that I did put shadow in, but it turned out to be highlight instead, I'll have to change that layer now that I have been rumbled. In my haste to brag about it I put it up thinking I would get away with it. You are sooo good at keeping my standards up. Teee Hee.

Thanks again everyone.
