Hello Matt, 

how are you?  I hope you’re well.😃 I’ve loosely based my watercolor on the attached photo , cropping the tops of the trees and focusing on the light path. I wanted that feel of light hitting the figures from within the forest and streaming through the right. My concern is that it’s looking a bit patchy? Also, again, I’m worried that I’ve lost that freshness so I may redo it on a larger scale based on your input. Thanks for your help, Sara

    OMG! This is beautiful! One day, I’ll paint landscapes with watercolor. I heard using watercolors is very hard, but I’m getting better with it.

      Thanks Shannon for lovely comment. Watercolours are definitely addictive, such a beautiful medium to use!

    A good example of how to draw from a photo reference and make it your own. Lovely piece of work Sara. Love the colours and atmospheric feel to it.
