Willy Lott's Cottage a Watercolor Painting


This painting is of a special residence in the United Kingdom. It's "Willy Lott's Cottage," a tutorial by Paul Clark. Through the years many artists have painted this lovely scene. I hope I have done it justice.

The tutorial was meant to be a lesson on including figures in landscape paintings. The figures were not too hard, I did practice. But painting the river was another story.

I used Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tubes on Canson cold press watercolor paper. Artist Masking Fluid was used to make the reeds at the bottom of the painting. I used General's Muti Pastel, Pastel Chalk Pencils to bring out the highlights in the painting.

Well Carla, I have to say, I think this one definitely takes the cake and is the best one I have seen so far. You most certainly did it justice indeed. I just love it.
Great work.
