Same inspiration, Two methods: Watercolour vs Acrylic Painting

Same inspiration, Two methods: Watercolour vs Acrylic Painting

It’s been about a year since I took out my acrylic paints but I decided to challenge myself to create two mini artworks from one photo inspiration; one in watercolour and one in acrylic.

Here’s the photo I used, I took this on a trip to Iceland a few years ago. The sunlight threading through the clouds and illuminating the lake was simply stunning. It’s no wonder that Iceland is such a magnet for photographers, I was there for only a couple of days but there were so many beautiful moments like this.

You can follow along with my process here. If you do use my video as inspiration, I love to see what you make, you can tag my instagram – @louracheldavis.
