Watercolour from Romania


I’ve never been to Romania, but my friend had been. He is great photographer who gave me permission to make my watercolors based on his photos. Here is the link for his work.

I chose this image because I would like to start using warm colors in my art. I’m a big fan of blue. Painting clouds is still challenging for me so that was great photo to practice. I want to make my watercolors more bright and protect them against getting fade. Do you have any tips how to do it? Maybe different tools or medium for watercolors?
