    Attempting those scary watercolours again 😀 Hope to continue this work-in-progress tonight.

    • Wow….When you attempt you go big,,,,it’s going to be beautiful…love your palette,,what is it?

        It is a Windsor and Newton Cotman colours palette. Not high end watercolours, but they do the job. I usually work in acrylics so I have more high end paints in that medium.

        I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing with this medium, and to top it all off, this design is a new style for me regardless of medium so I’m pretty much putting paint to paper and crossing my fingers 😀

        Thanks so much for your kind comments 😀

        Best wishes,
        Liz

    • It’s starting out beautifully! I found that when I switched from acrylics it was a bit like that switch from positive to negative painting. I had to think light to dark instead of dark to light. That really threw me for a while and I still tend to loose my whites because I don’t think it through carefully enough.

        Definitely. The whole process is in reverse and I’m finding myself very heavy handed. And I’m not a fan of once its down I can’t paint over it either. But it has a delicacy that acrylics can lack. Though I have decided that I need some better and finer watercolour brushes. These ones are expensive, but I’m used to working with synthetics and these are natural and behave very differently.

        Thanks for your kind comments 😀

        Best wishes,

          Thanks, Kaye 😀 There is now a song going around in my head 😀 Yeah, it is pretty much okay put the brush to the paper and care less about what happens and more about working with it.

          Thanks for dropping by 😀

          Best wishes,
          Liz
