When I found my watercolour work yesterday, to be honest, I was surprised. I thought it was so long ago. I haven't painted landscapes in a very long time. Now I practice drawing portraits and abstract art. This is my passion. And I was touched by the hands of nature. And I sat down again to work on the landscape.
Earlier, when I read the posts of my favorite artists about how important it is for them to have a specific paper, paint, surface, lighting... I didn't understand them. It seemed to me that if the color is visible, and no matter what shade it is. Or the same plot drawn on various paper will look and feel different.
Experience, development of sensitivity and taste.
