As usual, despite my best intentions, a lot of time has passed since my last post – oops! I’ve actually been quite productive over the past couple of months, working on pieces in my sketchbook to try and improve my watercolour technique.
These are my two latest paintings. I wanted to experiment with ink and watercolour, using different thicknesses of line to accentuate parts of the painting.
I have to say I am absolutely thrilled with the way these turned out. My approach was different from my usual methodical (slow) way, instead I leapt right in, sketching in pencil, inking the lines and then painting. This made the whole process quicker, looser and more enjoyable for me.
Here are a few more photos of my watercolours.
I’m really excited to do more of these, so watch this space! Thanks for popping by
