    My traditional works

    Hello everyone.These are my experimental watercolor paintings.I used less water content unlike usual watercolor technique so they look like oil painting.I used standard paper instead watercolor paper.Critiques are welcome.Thank you for looking.

    Note: For #1, color vividness is inflated because of scanner scan.

    #1 is 29 cm wide and #2 is 19 cm wide.

    I like the vivid color in the pieces. I thought at first that they looked like digital paintings and was surprised that they were actual watercolor. My only suggestion would be that I think the fact that the second image has white for the roof of the structure and that the sky is also stark white is distracting and makes it feel like the roof and sky could be a plane behind the environment. This could be solved with either a slight color change in the sky or roof. Otherwise I think the directness of the pieces is very strong.

    Looking at the again it could also be helpful to get the trees on the right side out to the edge of the page.

    Thank you JLife.For #1, original piece is not that vivid.With scanner scan, its overall color changed overly.I added its photo taken with cam.Its actual color is between scan and cam, this will be helpful to figure out original color vividness.For #2, you are right, roof and right side tree changes can be positive on composition and harmony.For #2, colors are accurate.Thank you again.

    Sure Cisci, it looks like they are both coming along well and they look really close to being down with some final touches.

    I like the watercolours; I take you're using tube colours not tablets. If the colours aren't right when you scan them try changing them in Irfanview (free) to get them closer. Also don't tick any options on the scanner to 'improve' the picture beforehand.

    Thank you Black Spot, I will try your recommendations before using scanner.Actually I applied correcting colors on the work with bird and it worked.For watercolors, I am using tablets instead tubes and yes, it is getting dirty if you are not picky.

    Hi, Cisci! I really like your artworks, especially the ones in watercolor. I actually liked the vividness of your paintings. As for your life stills, I think you still need to work on the lines and shading because I noticed that you have the tendency to darken some parts wherein lights appear to pass through based from your characters perspective. Other than that though, I think you are a great artist. Keep up the good work!
