The Slough (Watercolors)

Above is the first in pen and iron gall ink.   Some watercolor, too.

First watercolor, on cheap paper.  No lines.

On Arches 140 CP.  No birds – they all flew away.

Given I haven’t done any watercolors for weeks, I decided to begin with pen and ink – not thrilled with results.  From there, straight watercolor without any preliminary drawings or pencil lines.  Got me loosened up and made me remember how much I like drawing and painting in any format except maybe acrylic and oils.

I think an abstraction in watercolor is on tomorrow’s agenda.

    1. I appreciate your input, Fraggy. Yes, the 2nd in the series is blobby – those birds were not something that I could figure out what to do. And, like you, I prefer the canted pastels (first painting).
