Oh, this is pretty fantastic! How did you make the whites? Is it a white-out pen?

Thanks! I used the Uniball Signo Broad, it's a white pen and it's the best one I've ever used. Adheres real well, and keeps its colour and shine. And dries fast. I love em :D

Thanks Kittens. :hug: It is my first ever water colors achievement :w00t: I'm going to try it again. I've got no clue how people do it. I think I'll go on youtube and find some tutorials now, cause this one here, really was a lucky accident. :rofl:

Thanks Danny. I've GOT to try watercolors again! It was fun, but I didn't have a clue how to go about it. This just emerged, and I was able to pull it out :rofl:

Watercolors are all about building up darks, and oils are all about building up lights. They are the opposite thought process. And you can more easily recover in oils. In Watercolors, the paper is the light, and once color stained, the light is diminished. 

Still, you have a nice technique there on this card. :clap:
Welcome bunches!

Yes, it is beautiful! I faved it too! 

Painting trees in watercolor is not too bad. Be sure to draw out some image objects in light pencil, to help you keep control of the water. Use lost of paper towels for sopping up water, color, or unloading your brush when it is too wet. Build up layers and layers of thinner colors, into more opaque darks, as needed to establish your substantial objects. I also like to to do the sky over all the paper. The sky always show up as a reflection on everything. Get out that old hand-held hair dryer, to dry the water quicker; use gentle, or you will blow the color and water into places you do not want. In fact, use "gum arabic" to mask off those area you want to use for the bright highlights. Run off when nearly done, and touch up the highlights as necessary. This is for protecting the bright areas of deep dark, and allows for crisp lines between light and dark.

Have fun with it. The little tubes of watercolor paint goes a long way for 16" x 20" (and smaller) paintings too.

:D

I have worked in each a lot. I learned a lot about watercolors watching shows where the artist demonstrates painting an image, on the PBS and Learning channels. :eyes:

Happy Thanksgiving Danny! :tighthug:

I'm sorry, I didn't catch on in time that you have Thanksgiving in the States now. We've had ours in Canada a couple weeks back. You'd think our 2 countries could team up and have it on the same day, eh? :boogie:
