Hello dear Steemians,


Looking on weekend through the tutorials I read that even if using minimal amount of watercolour you can do a picture. In one of them it was a complex picture but made almost in transparent pastel tones so that you could think you can look through.

Another advice there was to do such painting with only few colours.

So here I am with such attempt, as you know from my last post we visited little haven couple of days ago it was day time and sunny, but I remember how it is when it is early morning, sometimes everything slightly covered with thin layer of fog and look mysterious. Therefore water, boat, sea shore, this is something that I wanted to use in my painting.


Hope you like it.



My step-by-step process:








The finished painting:
