Walking around 'Naardermeer' - 2a
This is a second version I made from a sketch I used earlier and this time I wanted to do a painting on a black background. Using white gouache and my watercolour paint I can create a painting that is very different from a watercolour on a white background.
Until now I used this technique only for night scenes, with this painting I tried a daylight scene.
I am really pleased with the result.
The technique is something I still am getting used to, but my experience is growing and problems are solved much more easily than in the first paintings I did this way.
These paintings are not so easy to picture for the purpose of showing them in this blog and other things. The light has to be good enough and my daughter has to be home to make the picture for me, my camera is not up to this task.
More information about this spot along the walk around the 'Naardermeer' is found in the blogpost with the watercolour painting I made earlier.
More information about this painting (paint and paper used, etc) can be found at www.jannekesatelier.tk
