Clouds Above Henry Cowell watercolor painting

in #art2 years ago


I don't always post my practice pieces but I thought it would be fun to show off how terrible these paintings can go sometimes. I tried this image 3 times before I got it close to what I wanted. I always try to learn something from my mishaps and sometimes the watercolor just doesn't do what you wanted it to do. I guess it's all part of the fun!

Try one,


Try two,


Try three!

Great post! I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Gosh, you should post your 'failures' more often, @fumansiu! Even the 'failures' are so beautiful !

Even though they might not hit what you wanted to achieve, I think it's wonderful to see how you are inching closer to where you want to get by degrees :)

Gorgeous result with the 'final' piece too... Lovely gradation and lighting and I love your expressive and free strokes <3

Thank you so much for the lovely comment!

I'm glad you liked seeing the 'messy fails' part. I often hide all the practice that leads up to the wins but for this round I thought it was pretty interested to see the painting evolve.

Thanks again, your comment made me smile!
