Day 14 : #30x30DirectWatercolor2019 : The Long Walk

June 14, 2019

“I Need a Good Long Walk”, 18×18″ watercolor on paper

Usually, I go back and forth about which I like better – the digital sketch or the watercolor. I think here, the watercolor is the better version.

Though…no…I can still go back and forth. The digital sketch looks like it’s pre-dawn. Where the watercolor is just an overcast day. I’ll have to try a version that’s a real effort at a nocturnal painting.

It’s all going to depend a bit on your monitor. And the lighting in your room. Things that look dark, but still visible, on an iPad can be pitch black on a PC monitor. Its a thing called ‘gamma’ – sort of a contrast setting in the different operating systems. IOS devices have a truly bright screen. And they’re often higher resolution than a laptop or this – my desktop.

That’s one thing about painting irl (in real life). You see, what you see. No wondering what the other person is viewing it on.

    I continue to love these. There’s something deeply emotional about them as though I’m remembering something. I particularly like the second one – it’s amazing and it truly does feel pre-dawn.
