Playing...


with watercolour. April's theme for the documented life project. My old Newton and Winsor palette is 20 years old and hasn't been used for at least 15, so long overdue for a revisit. Here is my page, with a touch of ink pen and Gelatos to finish off:


I am going to share my page over at Paint Party Friday and Mixed Media World challenge 'bright colours'.

  2. Great results. Another fabulous piece of work. The colours are so vibrant which is not necessarily what I think of in connection with watercolour. Made me wonder how long it is since I got my watercolours out... Too long, I think is the answer :oD

  8. Wonderful, Clare. You do beautiful work. I like the way she is only partially on the page. I like to do that with flowers. Maybe I'll try it with faces too.
