Sometimes one scene can provide inspiration for multiple paintings.
Sometimes it takes multiple tries until what you have on paper feels right.
These 4 watercolours are from the same photograph that was taken in the Languedoc region of France several years ago.
I like something about each one but I think I’ll have to do it again because none are quite “there ” yet.
With this photograph it will take multiple attempts to get it the way I want. However, I can now see at least two different directions I could go in and so maybe it will turn out that the photograph will be the inspiration of multiple paintings.
This watercolour was done from a photograph taken several years ago on a trip to Costa Rica. I’ve had the photograph in my file to paint for quite a while but couldn’t figure out exactly how to do it. That was when I was copying the photographs more or less exactly. Now that I’m taking a looser more interpretive approach I found it a little easier.
