613. Wildflowers on the Coast Watercolor painting by Mariko Irie

They are same location.

Switching media is not so easy. Nature of oil painting and watercolor painting are so different.

For example Oil painting starts dark to light colors.

And we have to paint watercolor painting light to dark, otherwise even it’s completely dried, very dark color breed by touching with water. And watercolor I don’t use white paint, white is leaving paper without paint.

Oil painting we have to have white paint.

I like painting both in oil and in Watercolor. The results are so different. It’s fun.
