It's wonderful to be able to have time to just have fun with paint again. No idea of what flower this actually is, but a few appeared in the garden and seemed perfect as the subject for a bit of experimental play ...
I did say experimental, didn't I? This is pretty far removed from the precise, detailed drawings I normally do ... but what a wonderful experience, splashing around with water and colour. Still feel that it lacks depth and am almost tempted to keep at it, but won't - that's enough for the moment. I remembered to take a couple of photos somewhere along the way:
I used watercolours - a small Winsor & Newton travel box, on a square 7"x7" Stillman & Birn sketchbook with smooth, extra heavy weight paper (180lbs/270gsm) and a variety of watercolour pencils for a few extra details at the end. Wonderful paint time on a drizzly, dreamy day.
If anyone knows what flower that is, please let me know!
Wishing you a colourful week full of creativity. Cheers.
