Another chance to take a watercolor painting class I took at literally the last moment. First we painted Heldenplatz in Vienna, though for me the rider in front not only looks in the wrong direction but also looks a lot more like Don Quichote than Prinz Eugen!
Painting something I have not yet seen is always difficult. While I have been in Rome more than 20 years ago, this view is something I could not relate to. Just looking at this painting I see and feel how I have struggled with the motive, not daring to "just paint something" but trying to recreate something I had no way of doing.
The same thing happened with trying to paint Akropolis, thought in this case I just tried to paint part of a temple and greenery. Here I was also fighting the paper, which just eats up the color as long as it is wet and I did not take the time to wait for it to dry.
So much to learn still....
