Pandaren Lotus Farm Watercolour Painting, Mists of Pandaria.

   My second submission for my WoW Crafting Challenge. Like the first post, this one has used a fairly obvious medium. I used watercolour paints for this painting, on 300gsm watercolour paper. I painted it from a selection of screenshots taken of the Lotus Farm above New Cifera, in the Pools of Purity, Valley of the Four Winds. There is one blaringly obvious mistake I made here because I wasn't thinking when I did it, and once you've noticed it, it's hard to unnotice it. So I won't tell you precisely what it is :P but it's quite obvious once you see it.
   Either way, I'm very happy with this painting, though the background is poor. Backgrounds have never been my strong point, I've never once succeeded in doing a good one, which is why my drawings and paintings usually have plain backgrounds, because I pour my focus into the maid subject, being, in this picture, everything in the front pool. The painting itself also looks better than the scan - it's always hard to correct colours once something's been scanned but I did my best. Originally posted on The Wyvern's Tail.
