A lot still to do in the attempt to pull this off, but progressing well.
I needed to take a couple of days off from painting this work to look into improvements to my YouTube, Website and Patreon tutorial delivery.
Back to the painting the next stage of the Carla in the Rose Garden Tutorial for you.
Feel welcome to ask questions.
Yes, I completed the watercolour stage of this artwork after 18 videos.
However the work wasn't completed. It still 'called to me,' telling me things that were needed.
I enthusiastically switched over to using half a dozen extra soft pastels and I tested out several blending tools. I'll get the edit for that part of the artwork to you next week. I take this part of the week, to write my blog, create my YouTube video/s and perhaps share short posts with you, but the coming video to bring the artwork to this stage is a longer one.
I love the combination of watercolour with a touch of extra-sot pastels for the completion of figurative work in the landscape I have been working this way for decades. What do you think? Do you like combining art mediums?
