I have ‘opened’ a gallery at fineartamerica.com/4-mike-malloy. FineArtAmerica is a fulfillment service with locations all over the world. My art is offered in a number of sizes and formats. The service also include optional framing. Ships direct to your location. Give it a look.
This is my first watercolor painted on Strathmore Toned Tan Multi-Media sheet. I have used this sheet for life drawing subjects but never tried to paint a landscape. I like the result.
First time using Saunders WC paper #140 cold press. I’m sold, really liked the surface.
This make of paper was recommended recently and thought I would give it a try.
Saunders Cold Press #90 white sheet. Good color hold out and a very nice surface.
It comes in 140# and should be even better in holding shape and absorption.
Anyone know where? I was given a photo without reference. This is a 10×16 watercolor on Arches 140# cold press sheet. Found out my neutral tint was leaning toward blue. Need to try another.
This was a donated image by a friend traveler.
I think I was channeling Ted Kautsky, one of my favorite watercolor artists (American, Architect, Artist 1896-1953) when painting this.
It’s OK but still have a lot of work to do to get to where I am not second guessing every stroke.
Ran across Tim Wilmot, watercolorist, on YouTube and watched a couple of his online demos and then attended an online in-person event as he painted a street scene in Uganda. Anyway, thought I would post a couple of my first-brush attempts after this instruction. My goal is to become looser in my painting and try more colors. Hard to break old habits.
