I had a little watercolour fun this afternoon painting some jellyfish. I was inspired by Maria Raczynska’s tutorial on her YouTube channel. Her watercolour work is stunning and inspiring.
This was a fairly simple exercise to do. I varied the composition of my painting a little and also used different paper and different paint. I used Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper ~ 140 lb NOT, 100% cotton. The paint I used was Daniel Smith’s Ultramarine Turquoise. That was the only colour I used. It’s a gorgeous colour and I love how it granulates and separates. A good choice for my jellyfish. I also didn’t do any pencil sketches first either.
The photograph doesn’t really do the painting justice – the reality is much better – however, I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible. You can click on the image to view it larger if you wish. I had so much fun doing this and it only took me about 15 minutes to paint. Happy days…. !
