Just to let you all know that watercolour is back!
For those that have been enjoying my markering (which I really have been myself) my markers will still be used but I need to make my daily bag as light as I possibly can so only one medium! I started markering to develop a technique for work sketches (and sadly for the whole period haven’t had a chance to a single sketch at work!) and they suited my need to limit my sketches to 10-15 minute max. Now it is all about weight … so I pick up from my abortive start of a moleskine watercolour book (a month or so ago)
The challenges ahead for me are
– work out how to do satisfactory 10-15min sketches in my morning skethc and walk using watercolour (any ideas are welcome!… I have a few myself…stay tuned)
– how to develop my watercolour to have more of the freshness of my marker work (I have a few ideas here too and want to find a book in my library on Cezanne’s watercolours…might not be what I remember it to be…but that is where I am going to start)
I have a vague vision of where I want my watercolour work to go… but unsure at the moment how to get there!
