Watercolor Study I by alicexz Watercolor Study I by alicexz
One of many boring little watercolor studies I did in school. I dug them up recently and will probably be posting more in the future!

Winsor & Newton watercolors. Actual size about 10"x7".

I love the colors and techniques but being a blocked artist I have to criticize others xD and I must say the mountains need more warm colors; feel free to strangle me ;)

the colors are just wonderful, and the shading is too.
i wish i could somehow harness the ability to do that and use it as such.

How do you get your blues to be so... vivid? I can never get that sort of richness of tone with watercolours; everything always turns out wishy-washy (well, it's been a while since I last painted)...

And your painting of the folding cloth (I guess I'm committing dA cardinal sin by commenting about two different deviations in one comment box :O) is really intense as well; it almost looks like you used oils! I do like how just taking the shades of two simple colours can make pieces like these :)

Ah, the paint I used to get that "intensity" is a type of blue called phthalo blue, which is actually my favorite shade! You can read more about it here [link] but basically it is a very bright, powerful green-blue, "valued by artists for its transparency" and "gives very clear washes when well diluted." Any artist-grade watercolor line should carry it.

Hope that helped!
