Over the fields

Every time I have few minutes free I enjoy a little water colours run, this time it was of a picture I saw in a painting magazine… I enjoy the practice run and beside I manage to burn some time I have to spare. I left this one for few days before I finished and put the birds in but when I looked and try to find the picture everywhere, I could not find it.. I also wanted to credit and mention the originator of this scene which was nice and detailed when I first saw it as it attract me to paint but it has gone, no doubt it will reappear when I forget about it… Some loud thoughts, I noticed that often I see something I like to paint, I leave it for few days and then I try to do it from a memory. Some time I remember the scene vividly and other times I only remember little which completely make the picture different. If I paint from a picture I’ll rather use a black and white version. When I paint a picture or even a scene I follow it in the initial stage and as I progress I work from memory or imagination and I am not sure why I get distracted and don’t constantly look at something even when it is a portrait. I wonder if others do the same? I keep telling myself to look again and again but it seems as this will be a learning curve for me which I need to work on. I also can’t change how quick I paint most of the time even I know now a day that in water colours I need often to let it dry in between washes so the colours won’t get muddy but often it don’t work as I need to finish the paintings. There is one thing I would like to change next year and it is to be able to use more than one brush during my painting… I am also lazy on working with a small brush for details…  even though I posses many of them… Hopefully I’ll follow some of my ideas and correct them mean time happy painting

  1. Dear Doron,
    You are too critical of your own skills in my humble opinion. 😉

    This is truly lovely and the little birds seem so happily swooping along. It’s perfection… blessings upon the holidays for you and yours. xox

    1. Sorry I am out of the country gone to Wobmania searching my life time Chocolate supply… yes took all my digging equipment and will be back in the spring.. hope you wont melt away x

  2. Water Colour ,by it’s very nature, has a ‘mind of its own’. You’ve done a brilliant job with it! Technique is something EVERY artist evolves. It’s ongoing. Most importantly you’ve expressed a Feeling or an Emotion that everyone adores; that is , in my opinion, THE most important thing in art. Happy Christmas to you.

    1. Kevin thank you very much for your kind comment. I do feel that my brush work from within and that is probably why I love it so much. It is the best expression tool I ever find and I can only recommend it. Have a super Christams with your family and friends and thank you for taking the time to comment.

  3. Lovely painting Doron, I can feel the atmosphere as the birds soar through the sky. I like how you go about painting, making the subject your own and letting your feelings guide you. There is something to be said for painting from a black and white photograph, as you then interject your vision of what is . . . this was a pleasure to see.

    1. Mary welcome back hope you had a good break happy New Year and it is great to see you around. thank you for your comment, I often if painting from a photo I look at black and white as you see great tones and you can give your interpretation which I always enjoy x
