A tribute to Andrew Wyeth...




A tribute to american painter Andrew Wyeth, with this painting which was also the topic for watercolor teaching class... How to reserve the white of the paper and make it "glow", by paying attention to the surrounding values. These play the most important role in the final impression of the whites. To end, the task was to make the snowy and, a bit windy, weather impression...

Lovely practice, Helen! I'm a big fan for Andrew Wyeth. His work has convinced me non-restricted potential in watercolour.
Best wishes, Sadami

Thank you Sadami and Lydie for all your visits and comments!
I like Andrew's drawings and watercolors very much so this was only very pleasant and fun to paint.

I would have enjoyed learning about that. You did it so beautifully! In your other works, I also admire the way you painted shadows with such perfect colors. This is a nice blog!

Hola Helen!!! Bonne année!!!!
Me ha gustado mucho esta acuarela y como el gran maestro Wyeth consigue, tú también lo logras con esta diferenciación de "blancos".
Me encanta.
Me gustaría verte en el blog de los ladrones, de vez en cuando.
Un fuerte abrazo.

Me encanta, sobre todo el equilibrio en la paleta de colores.

Buen domingo.

Gorgeous, and very Wyeth-like. I love his complicated neutrals, which you've used too. The purple-gray of the background trees is especially lovely to me.
