I'm experimenting a bit with ink and watercolors, learning to use these mediums to create the look I want. Not as easy as it looks when I see other peoples work, for example I can't seem to get an even wash using watercolors, without the "coliflower effect", and when I wanted some life in the background it just turned out messy. I guess I need more practise. This is from a photograph I took back in september.
This little miniature landscape (about 10 by 10 centimetres) turned out a little more like I wanted it to, but still the blue wash for the sky is a bit messy, I wanted a smooth blue wash - how do I do that? Any tips are greately appreciated! Ink and water color, from a phograph in a book I found at home (it seems I'm always looking for motives to draw or paint these days).
