Humid Heat

While I am working on the full sheet watercolor of this motive I feel for posting the miniature sketch. I guess it looks better than the large painting anyway. The sketch took 15 minutes – the large watercolor is on my easel for two nights already and is loosing the spontaneous power of the first washes. I probably have to start a new one. I might, but first I am going to finish the first attempt tonight.

027_2018 Watercolor-Miniatures / Lorenzo Santoni Handmade Paper ca. 21 x 15 cm / 8.3 x 5.9 in / Lukas Aquarell 1862

Schwüle Hitze – Während ich an der großen Version dieses Motivs arbeite, ist mir danach, diese kleine Miniatur-Skizze zu posten. Ich vermute, sie sieht ohnehin besser aus, als das große Aquarell. Die Skizze war in 15 Minuten fertig, an dem großen Aquarell pinsele ich jetzt schon zwei Nächte und langsam verliert es die spontane Kraft der ersten Farbaufträge. Wahrscheinlich muss ich neu beginnen. Könnte passieren, aber zuerst werde ich heute Nacht versuchen, den ersten Anlauf fertig zu stellen.

    1. Thanks so much. Aletha. 🙂 I finished it last night. It is different from the miniature because I am just not able to say something with one single brushstroke like in the miniatures – no matter how big the brush is.
