Watercolor Woods


                                                              ... white sable brush

                                        ... on watercolor woods                     

                                                          ... the light touch that eludes me

  1. I have had the honor to know several excellent watercolorists. I use watercolors myself and call my works doodles, not art. After so many years of physical labor, the light touch eludes me too.

    1. It seems to me to be a difficult medium to master, the light touch elusive, both in watercolors and, so often, in life.

  2. In general copying nature is elusive not to mention the difficulty that humans have with a "light touch" in any realm.

    1. Wonderful observation, Bill. Copying nature is problematic, to say the least. We humans are not known for having a light touch ... and I am a Taurus, which doesn't help. :)

    2. So are you saying you voluntarily feel comfortable speaking your mind? If so, good for you. We need more of that!

    3. I always did when younger, lost my way for a while, but have rediscovered my voice ... feels good. :)

  3. When I adjust the light-and-darkness of an image in Photoshop it lets me measure the process in terms of pigment or in terms of light. If only we could paint with light!

  4. Nice take. Verbally and pictorially.
