YouShouldYouShould: Watercolor?

The critical artist in me hates that I'm showing you this.  You better feel very special. 

Remember this is still like a "rough draft."  Normally I'd put a lot more time and planning into it but this is just to get a general look and feel...  ya know?  Anyway.  So here's one example.  Not too bad...  I'm just not sure though.  Watercolor is just a whole animal of it's own!  I was missing the way acrylic works, surprisingly enough... and I don't feel as satisfied with this... but maybe that's cuz it's a little messy compared to a real finished peice.  I just don't know!  lol

  1. Wow! I like it! I think the muted colors work well in this twilight scene and you've achieved an excellent effect with the firefly's glow.

    1. :) Thanks Roelant! I wanted the firefly's glow to be even more awesome but I think I came close to what I was looking for.

  2. I like. It is a muted tone but the colors are still bold.

    1. Good to hear, I really love using the "bold colors." I was worried.

  3. It's beautiful Ginny. It's an amazing rough draft. No matter what medium you choose it will be awesome!

    1. Sigh... I guess you're right. It's just hard to switch to something I'm less familiar with. I still don't feel quite satisfied like I usually do with acrylic.

    1. Do you think kids would though? And I can't touch up much with it like I could with acrylic. Ugh, I just don't know I don't know! I'm glad you like it though. Thanks Lee. :)
