My favorite part of this painting is that suggestion of a small pine tree towards the left of center. You just see its silhouette in the shaft of light, nothing else. I never would have thought of that, it's brilliant. The whole thing is beautiful.

Beautiful painting, I really admire your style of working with watercolours for sure. :-) What size in cm is A4 paper, what brand of paper do you use, and do you stretch your own?

Thank you. :)
A4 is 2129,7 cm (the most common size of paper). Currently I use Canson paper 300g 50x65 cm which I have to cut into smaller parts. What do you mean by stretching?

Ah okay here paper is usually 8.5 x 11 inches, but the blocks I paint on are varying sizes but I tend to use 31 x 41 cm as my basic one.

By stretching I mean do you pre-stretch the paper you work on at all? Here is a link to an article that briefly describes it. [link]

No, I don't. I've tried once the butcher's tape method but I must have done something wrong and the effects were rather poor. ;) Can you stretch it?

To make the ready picture flat I iron it after it gets dry.

I have not ever tried myself, although it seems reasonable enough to me. I only became aware of it because a professional artist on here was quite surprised that I used watercolour blocks rather then stretching my own paper.

In a way I am just perpetuating that thinking by looking at your work and thinking, she's so professional about her work she must stretch her own paper as well. :-)

I am guessing you don't use the steam setting when ironing. :lmao:

Once I forgot to switch the steam setting off. :XD: Luckily I noticed what's going on just in time.
I think that you don't have to stretch paper if it has 300g or more. It doesn't change shape much anyway.

Really I seem to be a professional? I'm definitely not. :D A little bit of talent and a little bit of experience is all you need to paint well.

LOL that's a close one for sure. I have so many watercolour blocks it will be a long time before I do anything different. I also have quite a few large acrylics to work on as well. Good thing it's cold here now, more energy for painting I think. :D

By professional I meant the quality and consistency with which you work. You are correct about talent and experience, but you need to include confidence, and motivation as well. ;-)

Regardless I quite like the work you do. :-)

Lucky you! Cold weather is perfect for painting. It's cold (and gray) here as well, but my studies are so time consuming that I can paint maximum 1,5 picture per two weeks. I'll have to make it up on Christmas. ;)
