Painting #20: "In the Fog"

 
 
This was my not so valiant attempt at painting the "all paint from one photo" from the Watercolor Workshop. I never imagined that fog could be so difficult to paint, and this painting is definitely overworked. It was a learning opportunity and I learned that I don't want to paint fog again!

The painting is on 1/8 sheet of Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper and is painted with some very old paints I have had since 1980's, Ocaldo Academy WaterColours - now I know why I never used them up!

Well Barb, it is a bit heavier than your usual works but nonetheless, I think it is beautiful. The bit of blue, the gorgeous swirling fog, the darker colors...Is that one of the Hounds of Baskerville I hear in the distance?

I absolutely LOVE this painting! I want it! When I saw it in my blogroll, my mouth dropped open, Barb, it's incredibly gorgeous! You should paint lots and lots of fog pieces I think!
