Dave these paintings are great. I'm afraid to try watercolors. I've heard it's the hardest to work with because the paint is so thin. The thickness of oil makes it easy to put the paint where I want it.

I'm going to try it once I get a few more acrylics done. Honestly, I think I like the look of watercolors better than any other medium. Like you Terry, I'm a bit afraid of it. I keep watching Frank Clarke's Simply painting and he makes it look really easy. Have Some More Fun, Horizon, Sky, Middle and Foreground. It's just that easy. At least when he does it.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

I like Frank.. he's a great teacher.. Unfortunately, he has gone to Acrylics. As for the watercolor.. the beauty of it is that the paint really does what it wants (for the most part). This gives some wonderful results at times.. other times you say "What the heck?" LOL!

As for the Watermark.. that's a DA watermark.. the picture is large enough to sell as prints.. and so when I put it up for that I let DA put my WM on it to stop thieves. Ashame you have to do that.. but the picture is a dear one to me.

Thanks for all of the comments!

Hey mr man this is probably a whole new topic I'm starting but, I really don't understand about watermarks and copy-write....

I think if it has an original signature then it's an original right?
just the same as is/in our birth certificates or death cert's...
everything else is a copy and to me thats fine, it's like downloading music anyone can download a CD and burn it to disk and thats fine
but they're not going to be able to get the original quality audio only MP3.... and shouldn't ALL art be free anyway? really?
unless it is personal, and if it's personal why is it personal?
for me if a piece of art has sentimental weight I'd want to share it as much as I could, in the hopes it evokes the same emotion in others it gives to me.
may be 1 day 100s of years from now they'll look back and say " HA! look how in the past they quibbled about ART - ART!!!!!!!!!!! of all things

Or may be Government doctrines will overrule basic human instinct to restrict unauthorized beauty?
take the most famous piece of art in the world to date the Mona lisa, millions of people have copies but there is only One.
As I've said great paintings especially the boat....either way I'm open to debate

I don't debate Sorry

But I will say.. I work hard on my artwork. I don't want someone else taking something I did and saying it's their work (yes.. there are people that will do that) I don't think anyone will debate who painted the Mona Lisa.. no matter how many copies there are.

As for a signature.. I am VERY good at digital editing. I could take one of your works and take your signature right off of it and put mine in it's place. I could then claim that I painted the work. So to protect myself.. I put my signature on.. I watermark pieces (many of them) and put them on DA. Then if per chance I saw one of my pieces claimed by someone else.. I can show that the date I put it up is earlier than the dated piece they have.. Make sense?

Lastly.. My art is for EVERYONE to look at and enjoy.. it is NOT for anyone else to claim as their work

@Bushcraftonfire "I don't debate"

we're totally in agreement of someone else making profit from your work being frustrating and I don't know how I would feel if someone did that...
thinking about it I might feel in a strange way flattered in some way, I was talking about personal enjoyment

Oh my god....a lot of these look like they belong in an old Disney film like snow white!

"Sure I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, and I carry a sense of my own destiny. Each of those things are just a small part of it. I collect information to use in my own way. All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience. I feel confined, only free to expand myself within boundaries"

@meli there mightbe two Mona Lisas painted by DaVinci. There was a show on PBS that makes a convincing claim.
