I am revisiting my early landscape watercolours in acrylic, using my hundreds of photographs taken on my journeys.I am trying to create watercolour effects in acrylic

Some acrylics I will use as a basis for more watercolours, as I try to create some qualities I can get in acrylic on my smaller watercolours

 

This image is based on some photographs I took on a late November afternoon on the way home from volunteering in the Coquetdale Art Gallery. 

I initially painted a watercolour to see if I could get the sky effects.

I have travelled this route hundreds of times since and I often notice different colours depending what time of day it is, which I can't always capture with a camera.

I almost always paint landscapes in 'portrait 'format but landscape format works well and I am going to try it in watercolour.
