Watercolor Painting Finished Yellow Clematis



Titled:  Golden Beauty



~Learn to See a bigger potential in different subjects no matter how small, like an Artists once said, Learn to  look at your subject with an different perspective learn to play with angles, and extract their essence.

For this Golden Beauty, the details where not of interest, but the white spaces in between to create a bounce effect or 3d effect on the plant, also the wet in to wet washes in the  fore background with different branches pulled out of it. Playing also with contrast leaving the whites to stand out in the painting.

The possibilities are endless using a clematis plant as an example, play with angles and shadows, this might just be the beginning of a new series.
