(a journey with watercolour and my dog)
Oh! Pat, he's beautiful. A wonderful result,well done!
Also, I love the use of light and shadows across the rocks!
Thanks, Beryl :) I'm pretty pleased with the shadows too ! :) xx
Lo sapevo!! Meraviglioso! Mi piace come il Toro spunta dall'erba!Belle le rocce in primo piano,sto studiando il modo come le hai dipinte,io ho ancora problemi nel farlo!:-))Ciao Pat,buona domenica!!
Thanks, Francesco - so glad you like him :) With rocks, there are many ways, one of my favourites I used here.. make the rock very wet, add in a few different colours and then sprinkle some salt on top. Leave to dry. It may be a little while. When bone dry, remove the salt using your finger. then paint shadows. Happy practising. :) xx
Hi PatThanks for joinig my blog.I've browsed a bit on the net and found you and your beautiful paintings. I'm looking forward to see what will you show more in the near futureThanks for the good wishes and congratulations
Hello Meine and welcome! xxThanks for the compliments on my painting. Hope you enjoy your upcoming trip xx
He turned out wonderfully!! I am going to share with my cow-loving friend. She will wish that she could have it!
Thanks, Tonya! I hope your friend enjoys the blog and the painting :) xx
Hi Pat, what a original and beautiful watercolor! I like very much the composition, with the rocks "in primo piano" (how do you say in English....front plane, first plane???), and the cow arising from the grass, really beautiful! Ciao and have a good sunday afternoon.
Thank you for the great compliment, Tito! So glad you like the painting. xxI would say front plane, or foreground - it doesn't translate well, some phrases are like that. But I understand perfectly "in primo piano" from my younger days in playing the cello in an orchestra. :)Hope you have a great Sunday too xx
The finished result is awesome Pat. That really looks a contented cow. Love it!Hugs xx
Thanks June - he does look like a happy chappie, doesn't he? :) xx
Very precious, with a magical light! Arianna
thank you, Arianna. xxLight is one of the things I love about watercolour :)
Such a beautiful piece Pat. I really, really love it. :)
I love the way this turned out, Pat! Sheryl
The title of this painting is perfect: the painting does have a dreamlike quality. It reminds me of an illustration in one of my favorite story books when I was a child. I really like this!
Oh what a cutie! :)
Thanks Crystal, Sheryl, Christiane and Maria. xxSo glad you all like the painting xx
It's gorgeous! The lights playing on the rocks are so perfect, and the expression on the little guy's face... Great piece!
thanks, Katherine! xx
I really like everything about this painting Pat ... beautiful! :))
