A lunchtime watercolour

I was quite happy with this watercolour. I finished it within half an hour during my lunch break. I used two photographs as reference, one for subject and the other for lighting. It is very small at 7,8 x 11,5 cm. I used masking fluid for the lighthouse and reflection. I painted 3 layers and used my mini-hair dryer each time. Wish I could be this productive every lunchtime.

  1. Great wet in wet sky, wonderful rock texture, lighthouse as a focus in a very light white( thank you for the explanation, masking fluid) sea water color dark and rich, reflections look less rigid than what I would spect using masking as usual a very good job.

  2. Thank setxu! I'm enjoying working with the small format during my lunchtimes. I am less afraid to experiment as it's not the end of the world if I make a mistake on such a small piece.
