Seascape and Paint Party Friday


Hi all -

Hope you have had a good week.  We have been busy, but not too much that I couldn't get some sketching done.  The painting aspect for me is on a back burner at the moment. I've works in at a couple of Galleries at the moment....the walls here in the studio are looking a little bare!  Not that I mind as it has been an opportunity to do some little sketches and drawings  - plus reading blogs!

Yesterday was the turn of  a small Seascape....just playing with an idea initially in a sketchbook




 and then changing it a bit onto  postcard size watercolour paper 6" x 4"




Mixed media as I used white gouche for the splashes of the waves..


Loose - quick - simple and
most of all fun to do


I'm Linking to
PAINT PARTY FRIDAY
today
with Thanks to
EVA & Kristin for hosting



HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND ALL

    1. Aww, give it a go...Top Tip: Prepare the paint first, then splosh it on the paper in wave shapes, the bigger the brush the better...Go on, like I said, give it a go :)

    1. Thanks Dianne, not difficult at all, in fact I think you get a lot of freedom painting them....just paint like your brush is a wave. Perhaps I should do a video of this to show how I go about it?
