Watermouth Harbour + Paint Party Friday

Here's another painting in my Saunders Waterford Pad,

which incidentally I'm enjoying using -

It is a Rough paper, so I wasn't sure at first if that would

be a good thing, I usually go for NOT paper, the (in between rough and very smooth)...

but as things turn out I've really enjoyed putting paint and brush onto this surface.

I plan to crop this painting from the pad, frame and sell it.


~ WATERMOUTH HARBOUR, DEVON ~


Today, I am joining the party....


Many thanks to EVA & Kristin
for hosting.

  8. This is a gorgeous sea scene, Ann. I think it will be a wonderful framed painting. What does NOT paper mean? Is that just a term you use or is it one I'm supposed to know? I'm clearly a novice in papers.

    1. Thanks Faye. Watercolour papers often are graded as: Smooth, NOT and Rough. Literally the NOT paper is the in between paper, it isn't Smooth and is isn't Rough, so it is NOT one or the other.....hence it is called NOT. Hope this helps Faye :-)

    2. Back in the old days.... hehehe, I'm not THAT old!.... it was full of boats! Including the old sailing ketches that delivered strawberries to Wales, and brought back coal.

      Delete
    3. There are still quite a lot of boats in the dry dock part (not sure if they call it dry dock, but the piece with no water)...you can tell I know a lot about boats, lol. It's nice to know about the trade between here and Wales, thanks Shammickite :-)

  22. This is a beautiful painting-I'm not surprised you plan to frame and sell it. I love the loose feel to watercolours which you capture so well.

    1. Thanks so much Judy. Yes, rough paper can be surprising, I had avoided it at one time, but I think it adds to the painting process now.

  25. This came out really nicely, Ann! I love the boat and the way you did the water. I'm sure it will look great framed.

  26. Really love this soft landscape Ann. I have no doubt it will be a success for you. Interesting to hear your view on Saunders Waterford especially as I used it yesterday for the fourth time and was still struck how difficult I found it to manipulate water and pigment in a loose fashion... and you know I am a loosie at heart... lol Perhaps it is what we get used to. :-)

    1. I got disheartened with the rough paper and had left it for some time, then I suddenly thought I would mix a lot, A LOT mind, of colour in my deep well palette...I soaked the paper first with clear water and dropped on the paint, then left it to dry completely. I just added detail on top. I think the sheer frustration of the paper made me bold and just go for it...glad I did.
