To give a watercolor, or a painting in any medium for that matter, have a cold, wintry feel to it, there are several components:
Softness (Watercolor is the perfect medium for this)!
Abundance of cool rather than warm colors
Lots of grayed colors, even greens (for example, no warm, bright greens)
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Be sure to click on the images to enlarge them. “Cold Light of WInter” is the demonstration I did for the RIchardson Civic Art Society in Texas on February 18th.
New look for my blog! I am changing my blog provider to Fine Art Studio Online soon, so it will have a new look and probably won’t be showing all of the previous posts any longer. So…if you haven’t looked back at the past posts, you might want to do so in case they might go away!
Thanks for taking a look at my blog! You may see a lot of the paintings on my blog on my website, www.cecyturner.com.
