Cliché

Some people think the subject of old barns in watercolor has become an overused and tired cliché. But so what? I personally think these structures are endangered and enduringly beautiful. So, cliché or not, I will keep reaching for my camera whenever I see one.
…………………………………………................................................................

Certas pessoas consideram o tema de velhos celeiros/barns como um cansado e abusado cliché. E depois? Pessoalmente encontro estas estruturas não só em vias de extinção, mas perenamente belas. Daí, cliché ou não, vou sempre agarrar a câmara quando vejo um.

Speed

At times, I force myself to paint watercolor as quickly as possible. The idea is to avoid adding excessive detail that risks losing the painting’s center of interest. This exercise shows the view outside my window and took 20 minutes to complete without previous drawing.

Por vezes, forço-me a pintar aguarela o mais rápidamente possível. Isso tem o intuito único de me obrigar a eliminar detalhes que arriscam a pintura a perder o seu centro de interesse. Este exercício mostra a vista da minha janela e demorou 20 minutos a completar sem desenho prévio.

Heavy Skies - Céus Carregados


Today I continued to experiment with heavy skies, which I have always liked. I just purchased some new colors designated “Lunar” from Daniel Smith. They are very granular, an effect that I find very interesting, but that I have yet to perfect over the paper surface.

Continuei hoje a experimentar com céus carregados porque sempre tive essa mania. Comprei uns novos tubos de cores chamadas “Lunar” de Daniel Smith. Estas tintas são muitos granuladas, um efeito de que gosto bastante, mas que ainda preciso de aperfeiçoar sobre o papel.
