Trying to change direction ...

I don't watercolour as much as I'd like to. I'm going to try paint for an hour or so after each evening meal. Go to less to life drawing evenings, I need to sit down and paint, practice and paint. Play, I need to have fun too, very important that.
Here are some recent watercolours and yes, they were fun to do. The first wash was done at life drawing and the darker tones where added later.

    Nice watercolors, fresh,colorful,expresive, a real pleasure, thank you for these presents.

  2. Thanks, I enjoyed the result of not using any pencil marks. Actually there is an interesting story about the sitting nude painting. I was handling my palette when I got burnt sienna paint all over my thumb, I had no option but to wipe it off on some fresh watercolour paper. That is how the painting began, with the smudge that became her head.

    Thes is a very happy accident, with a wonderful end.
