Experimenting With Watercolour

watercolour painting

A couple of years ago I was visiting the Unesco World  Heritage site of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia.  It is an amazing place to explore.  I was hoping to paint some watercolours of this place as soon as I got back.  I did some sketches while I was there but soon realized that it was going to be a challenge to paint.

This week I have decided to give it a shot and see what I come up with.  Painting moss covered, crumbling ruins requires some thought and a little risk taking.  Getting bogged down in all the detail would be very easy to do.  I have taken a more impressionistic approach to focus more on the mystery of this place.

I am not finished exploring the possibilities of this picture and so I will paint it over and post the results soon.
