    Wow you're really rocking those watercolors ! Awesome pieces. I love the soft pinks and expression on the woman at the top. And the form of the figures in the latest post I think you nailed.

    Did anyone say pink?

    GoldSeven's watercolours and inks - update on last page, 6th April 2015

    Watercolours on A3 Hahnemühle paper. Finished this one two days ago. I wasn't even going to post this one here initially, but it's growing on me. Despite the pink. I did mix a lot of Indigo and Sepia into the paint there, but this viole(n)t tone I have is extremely persistent if watered down...

    And anyway, the world needs more pink!



    Thanks a lot for the kind words, guys!

    My latest - some of you might have seen this floating around in the wip forum.

    "Der Schimmelreiter"

    It's for a "local legends" contest in traditional media on deviantArt. And for my dad's seventieth birthday.

    Congratulations on being one of the few people who does watercolors that I really like. Beautiful storybook style. I assume you use a pencil or pen for the line work?

    Thanks, Dahami! It's pencil, yes. Scanned and printed on watercolour paper, usually tinted slightly.

    An older piece revisited and shaped up. The last version was digital, but after losing the file, I felt doing it again in watercolour would be a way to do it more justice this time.

    Haven't got much done over the winter - except marking exams. :| Here's something new, now. Trying around with different watercolour techniques than I usually use. I like the result, though wetter techniques need better paper quality than this.

    It's been nearly a year, huh?

    I spent most of that year house-hunting - artistically, I spent it mostly in Middle-earth. Some works inspired by Tolkien's Silmarillion:

    Both watercolours on cold press paper.

    Some experiments in a softer style, in pencil with a watercolour wash as background (the second has some added Photoshop texture).

    (Yes, I adore Alan Lee's Tolkien work.)

    these most recent ones are great! I'm really loving the man riding the horse, it's nice to see you using a less monochromatic palette, it's really lovely.
    I was wondering though, when you print your linework out, do you have any trouble with the printer ink bleeding? I've always assumed that would be a big issue.

    Thank you, Erinel!

    Printer ink bleeding depends entirely on the brand of the printer. I've been practising this approach with my last three printers; HP worked mostly but left a greenish bleed around the lines; Canon bled all over the place - and Epson is 100% waterproof. I've had an A3 size Epson printer for one and a half years now and it's absolutely great. I even takes paper of 300g and more.

    Love all of these! Great line work. Great colors and style. Particular ones that stood out to me instantly were the mostly red toned one of the guy on the horse. The big armored LOTR guy. I spent a lot of time analyzing how you handled the planes of the face of the guy with the harp, especially around the upper nose area where it kinda swirls under the eye ... does that make sense? HA! Anyway, they all look great! Hope for more soon!

    Thanks a lot for the praise and the critique - mehran, you're right, I often get too sloppy on anatomy. In the sketch, I'll tell myself, naaaah, I'll fix that in the lineart... except I don't. That's bad, I know.

    Ray, I've actually got some process and close-up shots of the harper picture: http://gold-seven.deviantart.com/art...lour-199541215 There are more walkthroughs on my blog.
