Super simple painting for a packaging label I was commissioned for IRL =) It's simple because I also designed something to surround it, but I probably shouldn't post the full thing on here. So enjoy these happy hillsides~

No problem. I can see how that would be the case; watercolour is often seen as an archaic medium which is amusing to me personally as the visual outcome of watercolour work is often - dare I say it - abstracted.

I agree. Realistic watercolor scenes is fine and good, but I think the glory of the medium can be found in more impressionistic or abstracted approaches.

Oh my god I love this so much! The simpleness of the backround with the watercolor media really make a calm serenity piece, it is amazing in a simplistic way, which is often very difficult to do, man I'm so jealous, watercolor is so hard :tears:
It makes it all the more wonderful to see this after coming back from watching a movie called Secret of Kells, have you seen it before? The entire movie incorporates watercolor style backrounds, now I feel like I'm getting a watercolor overdose :XD:

I'm glad you appreciate the simplicity so much! I actually was debating whether or not to post this cuz it's so simple, but I'm glad I did haha.

Everyone IRL says the same thing, that I must be amazing because watercolor is so hard, but I don't feel that way... Oil and acrylic are impossible for me, while watercolors are quite easy! Maybe the biggest thing is watercolors act so different, so people try to make them do things that they can't. But even though they're easy for me, I have to say... they test my patience like no other medium haha.

I've heard of Secret of Kells here and there, but I've never seen any art from it, or know what it's about. Is it something I should check out~?

No no, watercolor is impossible :noes: The one part I never understood about watercolor is how your supposed to mix colors, since its all water, I thought it'd be really hard ^^; The only way I know how to watercolor is this one time where I spilled ink on my desk and just took a wet painbrush and used that (basically monochrome :rofl:) Oils have always been more fun in my opinion because you can do all sorts of textures with it as well as mix easily :lmao:

Yes, you should totally see it :D I enjoyed it a lot because of its imaginative and unique art and animation style, though it does take quite a bit of imagination to understand (I showed it to my sister and she didn't get it :XD:) Though it might be a bit hard to find since its a year old movie ^^;
Here's the longest trailer I could come across: [link]

But watercolors are so easy to mix! You do it right on the page! :lol: You paint one color down, then just dab the color you want to mix right on top. Then they bleed and merge into each other in a beautiful, unpredictable way, I love it :meow:

Woah, that trailer was really interesting... plus that animation looks gorgeous. I'll have to check it out sometime!

And enjoy these happy hillsides I shall! Very beautiful scenery here. I admire how the change in hue of the grassy hills gives off the illusion of great depth between them. Lovely. <3

Thanks! :lol: I'm glad the depth comes off that way, I was afraid the simplicity might make it flat.
