Watercolor Paintings of a friend
 
I thought I'd like to share my friend paintings from his collection entitled "Pathways".
He is a master of almost all mediums. Most of the paintings I've seen are done in watercolor.

I'll add more photos when I have the time.

Hope you'll like it.

His work is beautiful! I especially love the top one - I think watercolor is very hard to work with - one more reason I admire such talent. Please post more when you can!

Tell your friend he did a great job. I mess with the medium myself and it not as easy as you'd think.

I believe water color is the hardest medium. Unlike oil paintings when you mess up, it can get fix by covering another color layer. You can't do that on watercolor.


I've done some watercolor works but mostly on perspective renderings for my job.

Ill post more in few days so I can go back to this thread so those who missed it can see. It sad when it gets buried.

Nice. You can actually fix mistakes but do it before they dry. Well, you can fix dry paint too with lots of careful scrubbing.

You can always publish the book through amazon. You don't have to go through a normal publisher.

It depends. When the colors are light you can do it by washing of brush until they are gone, but darker ones, I doubt. They will leave marks.
Thats why it is important to have another paper to test color before you apply.
