new watercolours

[slideshow]These works were commissioned to be painted from the personal photos of Bradys Lake which were taken by the commissioner. I loved the moody photos and have been to the location so that made the job easier. Although the original photos were a little dark in the shadow areas due to difficult lighting conditions, I was able to suggest more light in those areas in the paintings. I do not work in a  photorealistic manner but suggest the main features with my primary aim to create an atmosphere  where the viewer feels they are in the location.
