I am struggling with a piece I started last year. The view is of the Minas Basin from the back window of my house.
Starting in again, I initially made good progress.
I muddied the sky. But I also see, that the perspective, proportions, and some of the colours are off. I’m a little lost. The paper feels too thin (140 hot press), and/or, there’s not enough pigment on my brush, or perhaps I need to give up and start over with a better drawing, cleaner wash for the sky, and better colour matching.
Happy to hear from other watercolour artists as to what they think will redeem this. I’m afraid lifting off pigment is not an option at this point.
