Exemoor Cottage

with 3 comments

Exemoor is in U.K and I have never been to  U.K ; so I guess it is more in the country-side. I used a reference photo by Ray Lawrence but his photo taken  on an early summer morning. I made it an early autumn morning! I am glad I am able to execute my artistic license. In the foreground, there are no sheeps in the reference photo. I bet you will see sheeps all over the place in the country-side.

I am glad I tried out landscape in watercolors this time. I have been wanting to for a long time. I just did not have the courage to execute it.

P.S: I stretched the watercolor paper over the stretcher bar and stapled at the back. I need to spray 2-3 coats of fixative and then a few coat of acrylic gloss varnish. You can learn how to create gallery wrapped watercolor here.

Watch a video made by the watercolor artist Doris Joa to see how she makes her watercolor canvas:
