Gorgeous colors!!!

Ron Morrison said...

Tanks Grimm, the reason I have painted cars and boats is basically just so I can have a place to play with paint.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, the whole thing is just about colour for me and I don't want to do it like everybody else.

The miniature has been born, the next time my wife visits she will get pics, she blew the first go round.

It's saying....come restore me. You too much....another great work of art.....you taught yourself well.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Madison, the cars just became an enjoyable way to learn how to paint. I never would have painted without a favourite subject. Then I got hooked on watercolour.

Michelle Smith said...

Like the colors on this one.

Michelle Smith said...

Are you familiar with pour painting using watercolors? There is a two day class coming up here that is about pouring with watercolors. Looks like it could be interesting.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, yes I am familiar with pour painting, but I've never used liquid watercolour that I think is available now. Watercolour works so much better when lots of water is involved and when its poured and manipulated. But its a bit gimmicky, it becomes more like an artificial process than actually painting. It would be fun to take a class though.

I like the textures in this work. The colors combine with the texture to give a most vibrant feel. Seems as if painted on some fine fabrics.

Thanks W.K., maybe different paper?
