Abstracting the landscape in watercolour


Today I enjoyed abstracting the landscape…… tidal impressions. Using watercolour and a limited palette for each work I used rough papers to suggest various textures such as reflected light in water, fluid passages and sand. These are two of the works… I will add more. The choice of brush varied for different passages as brush selection is critical in obtaining different effects.Some were loosely based on photos while others evolve purely from within. The wintery coastal view beyond the workspace window also influenced the arttidal series

  1. Looks great! The different textured paper really gives your work a new dimension.
