Watercolour and graphite pencil, on Strathmore 300gsm 5” x 7”, cold pressed watercolour paper.
Day 31 – and the final day of the World Watercolour Month challenge!
This vase of wattle sits in the corner of our local cafe, and greets me with effervescent waves of yellow, and blue-greens…
I welcome it with washes of watercolour, and try to tie it delicately together with fine pencil lines. Amazingly, I manage not to dip my brush in my coffee!
Though I draw or paint most days, part of what made this watercolour challenge, challenging, was to bring a work to a semblance of finish, daily – and then to post it in various places online! Mostly it’s been an enjoyable art filled month.
And so an effervescent thank you for viewing this month of watercolour wanderings; and the encouraging comments I’ve received along the way. And thank you Charlie O’Shields at Doodlewash.com for organising this watercolour event.
I’ll be back posting some art again soon (and hopefully one of my illustrated poems) perhaps in: watercolour, gouache, coloured pencil, acrylic, watersoluble pastel…or iPad art, or a mix of everything! Spoilt for choices and thankful†.
Cheerio for now; enjoy your day.
