Experiments with Watercolour
Although my output over the last few months has been pretty sparse (to say the least), I have been thinking a lot about different mediums and more experimentation. With this in mind I bought a starter set of watercolours and felt my way through a few plein air sketches with no aim other than to see what would happen. I don’t know how to use watercolours in a “technically correct” way, but I’m not at all concerned about that as I think in this case experience can be a good enough teacher to get you going.
I must admit that although the bag I packed to go out with is still pretty heavy, the process of painting outside with watercolours is much easier than with oils in terms of mess, clean-up and just generally keeping things under control. Now to find the discipline to get out there.
