Church II by Just-a-Witness Church II by Just-a-Witness
watercolors. I know this is a very "busy" painting but i wanted to try many different effects and textures. I don't think it came out bad :)

The cool blues on that white building are relaxing to look at! Nice work. :-) If you want to experiment with even more textures in the future, you could try salt, subtle splatters of thick paint, paper towel blotting, natural material stamping, or pastel on top of watercolor. I need to try some of the ones I named, but I've seen other watercolor artists try them. Just brainstorming for new techniques...gosh, it makes me miss doing watercolor. Thank you for inspiring me!

Serene and Truly Beautiful. This reminds me very much the oil-paintings of my Grandma Jenny, who was dedicated Christian and who painted during her various trips to Israel. This kind of serene art gives the peace of mind for both the observer and the artist. You have truly a God given gift, because you can paint like this.

My Grandma Jenny once said: These are the most difficult tasks of the visual artist: To depict water and to depict light. You have here successfully accomplished both those tasks in truly a wonderful way.

The flat washes on the church are a great effect when contrasted with the busyness of the surrounding environment. It really gives the eyes a safe resting place. :thumbsup::)

The water doesn't look exactly like water. I know its hard to capture water in a painting ><
the piece is both busy and still. I love it. The church (?) is just a solid block, and around it is movement and just dabs of color.

Excellent! Watercolor is so nice and flows easily off the brush. I like the look yu have chosen for this as it tells the viewer a lot without having to be ultra detailed. Great work :).
