Let the water be your guide

Less is More

Watercolour is always difficult, once you put the brush down,
it wil be there forever, you can try to correct things,
but it will not improve your painting.
Less is More is a golden rule, simplefy things, and your watercolour looks better!
This one is three washes, first the backgroundcolour covered the whole paper.
Half imperial Bockingford, second was the barge, when that was dry, 
I did the foreground wash and reflections.


Old trees on side of the road, These ones standing in Haarlem
On the side of the Randweg

Soft light over the waterways
