Although I do paintings large and small on canvas using acrylics, you may have guessed by now that I enjoy Watercolours too. At the moment I'm working my way slowly through a collection of watercolour paintings, which I intend to frame and sell. These I will share here eventually....but be patient I don't intend to hurry them.
In the meantime another part of watercolours for me is Sketching. Sometimes they are roughly done quick notes (for reference later) or they turn into a more detailed watercolour - but still a sketch nonetheless. It's strange how a rough sketch, that barely looks like the subject, can actually remind me of what the place/object was like at that time.
Here's one that probably fits in between rough sketch and detailed...okay lets call it a loose sketch ....I actually love painting these. I do a quick pencil outline and then get to enjoy the feeling of the brush and painterlyness (I know, that isn't a word...but it is Sunday and that's the mood I'm in...so painterlyness it is) :-)
