Today's Watercolor ; Turn sunshine into rain!

That's the good thing with painting - you can do anything! For today's watercolor I used the reference photo below that I found on pinterest, but I wanted to make the nice summery scene a bit more dramatic, so I changed the beautiful weather to stormy, rainy day (-:



Tip of the day: I mixed a lot of that stormy sky color so that when I started with the rest of the scene I could mix a bit of that sky color in with all the other colors I used and get a more harmonious feel - the sky reflecting on the ground.

Hugs!

Karin, this is delightful. It reminds me of a watercolor I gave to my mom long, long ago. It was done in all fall colors and she loved it. This beautiful painting did what paintings should do...evoke emotions in response to what the artist has done. Thanks for this memory. Bev
