Colouring in

After infrequent, but disastrous, attempts over the years to use watercolours, I recently decided to address this problem and sought professional help.

Whilst there's obviously still a lot to learn (and to practise), my initial surprise at producing something other than my previous sludge-coloured soggy efforts was great (patience appears to have been a long missing factor).

The scans below aren't brilliant ... rather like the images ...  but I like to think that I'm showing a gradual improvement.

1st effort: poppies

2nd effort: sheep & background wash

3rd effort: llama

    Excellent water colours, a case of less is more!

    Struggling with dissertation, surprise surprise.

    All good with you?
