Back to blue

After a year trying on red watercolor paintings, I give up for now. I'm done!

Perhaps reds in painting is more for oils or acrylics than watercolor.

Here's my only 2 watercolors with red that I think were successful: Soleil Brulant by BlueCaroline  Road to the future by BlueCaroline

The rest of my 2017 attempts at red watercolors are all in the trash bin. I lost a lot of time, material ($$$) and was not productive at all with my obstinacy with paintings red watercolors... It's over. I'll continue to paint with yellows,oranges, purples, but avoid heavy strong cadmium red.

Hope you're glad to see I'm back. I hope I'll be productive in 2018. Thank you for watching. small heart - blue small heart - darker blue small heart - blue

A classical one! And i see little changes in your style. Blue is the colour of your soul, indeed. But don't give it up with red. You've already created cool things with that colour!^^

Thank you  Christian. Yes painting with blue is the easiest for me, so I guess you're right, blue is the colour of my soul.

But red and earth tones paintings have such warmths.

Wow, really nice color transitions!

Hey, I recently found the program "Rebelle" which seems to have a pretty good simulation of watercolors... what's do you think?
Personally, I'm more into gouache :D

I'll check it out that programme! But I think I prefer traditional watercolor, as it brings me peace of mind. It's like meditation.

I LOVE gouache, really. Years ago, I choose watercolor over gouache, but it was not an easy choice. I think you are really good at gouache!
