Danielle Kantola completed our Watercolour course and these paintings are from her last set. Daniel explains a little about them in her text below. We wish Danielle the very best of luck in her future watercolour painting, we are sure she will do excellently!
I chose a painting I thought was the least successful that I made in Japan. I had limited supplies so I tried lifting the grass out in the first painting.
When I tried the 2nd version I played with masking fluid and negative painting. It is inspired by a photo I took of a grizzly eating a salmon in Alaska. I still don’t think the 2nd version turned out as well as some of my other paintings, but I did learn a lot from this painting. I still have a lot to learn about composition, and light. Really enjoyed this course, and will keep working towards progressing with watercolours.
