I have Got My Watercolours Out!
I tend to go from acrylic, to drawing / illustration, to watercolours, to collage, to mixed media .... and back again! This week I have had the urge to get my watercolour paints out again. I get so excited looking at those flat round pans of delicious colour. I love the subtlety of watercolour. It is really versatile - you can paint in a very subtle way, letting the colours run wet into wet and bleed against each other, alternatively you can get bold, rich, sharp colour by using more colour and less water. It's the perfect medium really. I have some large sheets of gorgeous lightly textured paper which I am going to be working on. I have already laid down some washes and am keen to get started on some more detail. I usually work with drawing pens as well when I am using watercolour to draw in lots of detail. I will post some work in progress shots as I get them done. See the watercolour / mixed media works I have in my Etsy Shop at the moment by clicking HERE
