Anyhoos, back to the point of this post. The work in progress started like this -
again, using the Saunders Waterford spiral pad. As you see I splashed on lots of colours here and there. A little kitchen roll at the top took out the clouds. All added on pre-wet paper, so lots of fun dropping the colours in.
When this totally and completely dried I added some detail and the final sketch ends up like this:
'Resting by the estuary'
This sketchbook is proving very useful,
I'm using this technique to
experiment in readiness for
future paintings to be framed.
