Experiments


I finished the house I started working on right after my watercolour class a few weeks ago (see earlier post), experimenting with prints and stencils among other things. I think it turned out pretty well, for a first trial. Since a part of my art plan for this year is to work in series, I will keep experimenting with these techniques some more. We´ll see where it lands.

15,5 x 18,5 cm, watercolours on Arches wc-paper, fine grain.

Very nice combination Nina. I really like the way you positioned the diamond pattern along the same diagonal as the shadow of the house, and the other stencil to almost suggest a tall fir tree, and as an echo of the house's roof. Bravo !

It's so YOU Nina, adorable blue wash and I love the mix of fine art combined with print.
Sorry to read you've been poorly, hope you are feeling better.
Beautiful tulips BTW!

Interesting combo! It works nicely, Nina. I think you've hit something original and intriguing here. It's quite pleasing to look at and flows nicely. Great job! Looking forward to the next in your series.

This is a striking piece Nina! I love the collage feel of it. The colors are subtle and inviting.

Charming! I am a sucker for night scenes, and this one calls out to me. Love the stenciled effect!

This has worked really well. Do you intend to work over it even more? I'd love to see what other ideas in this technique you can show us.

I like, like, like it lots! Watercolor is such a fun medium to fangle around with.

Ann said...

Oooh, I love this! The concept is intriguing with the stenciled shapes. I really like how they come and go with transparency - if that makes sense!

josé louro said...

You are so brave to combine these techniques! I just love it! Will you be doing some more using the stencils/patterns over your paintings?
