IF - Focused


These snowman are focused on their passions. Yeah, a bit of a stretch, but it works! : D

This is another quick painting to get in more practice with watercolors, and develop convincing shadows. I like it, but the shadows are a bit harsh, making them look like a spotlight is on them (which I guess is OK considering their activities!). I know the sunset doesn't fit, but yet is another experiment!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is wonderful Tom! The colors and characters, the idea itself is unique. Your comment on my blog meant a lot to me and made me smile. Thanks so much :)

Hya Tom, I think the shadows are well done, very hard to do shadows on a white snowman! Perhaps you could dirty up the less important colours, eg grey the sky down - and that will make their complementaries glow (Orange in this case) more?

Just an idea. Are you working on smooth paper? Some times rough paper gives great granulation with the right pigments... cheers
