Playing with watercolour for the first time in years. It used to be my favorite medium, especially when travelling…swipe for a building in Venice, the streets of Istanbul, the Isle of Skye, the River Yealm estuary in Devon, a minimalist view of Dartmoor, a farmer’s shed in Umbria and Notto in Sicily.
But it’s not an easy medium, especially if like me you’re not a wet into wet painter. I would love to hear your thoughts, tips and techniques and do reach out to me with questions if I can give any ideas back.
I’m looking forward to international travel again this year, the first time in four years! Back to Umbria, an art residency in Ireland, travels through England and an art workshop on the Greek island of Skopelos! Sketchbooks will be an essential part of my travelling kit!
