From the boat

It was an amazing summer day today and we went to the lake by boat. I sketched with watercolours the cliffs on the shores. I like fresh green colours against the cliffs.

Starring: sepia and verde phtalo

Today I wanted to mix Verde Phtalo with Sepia. Verde Phtalo is very strong green, almost screaming. Its character changes totally by mixing it with natural tint of Sepia. I begun my painting today with this mix.

Faded daffodils after the Easter

The daffodils of the Easter have withered, but just now they look interesting.

I draw them with watercolorpencils. Before that I used masking fluid, which has to be rubbed afterwards. White lines appear after the masking fluid has been rubberized.
