    Tropea

    Another watercolor only (except for the basic sketch). From a picture. Several layers, mouse only (the approach doesn't require so much precision) and limited sheet size and resolution. I'm reasonably happy with this watercolor fight and the few simple tricks and settings I used not to mess it all too much.

    I particularly like the castle on the hill and the sky in the BG...well done !!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Dear Steve, you pointed out the parts (I'd include also the sea a beach to some extent) which came out satisfactory enough. The hill ended up in a mess spoilt by attempts to get too much granulation (on a small size rough sheet). Moreover it seems substantially attached. Thank You!

    Thank You, dear ATPlus! You're absolutely right as You may read just above in some more detail. AR watercolors remain still a little random as for the outcome whenever you want to get too different effects in a simple and direct way. You should really establishe a precise style, a process and keep practicing for reliability on the outcome.

    Not among the best, rather the opposite. Anyway thank you, dear Kenmo.

    I like it Caesar, a very nice effect you are getting good at water colour.

    I like the placid tones of the distant horizon, very peaceful !
    If I were marooned on a desert island, please air drop me a copy of Artrage 5.0! (Plus a laptop and solar panel)

    Thank You, dear Iceaxe! That's the decent part of it, the rest a far less successful experiment.

    it's a pretty good attempt at what is a difficult form of painting. At the moment it seems you are using too much 'Wet on Wet'.
