A couple more sketches for the #30x30DirectWatercolor2018 challenge – again no ink in theses sketches apart from the date and written descripton, all just watercolour….different views of North Cottesloe on different days….
Having a go at Marc Holme’s #30x30DirectWatercolor2018 challenge (and it is a challenge) – the idea is to paint something (anything) in watercolour only – no ink or pencil lines and post the painting each day for the month of June. Here’s a few efforts painted down at my favourite place – the local beach. The thing that’s tricky with painting directly with paint is that there’s no drawing “scaffolding” to guide where to place the paint – you have to have a pretty good idea of the finished painting in your head. It’s harder to fix up mistakes in watercolour than other paint mediums so planning ahead is a really important part of the process (which is a good thing to learn and practise).
