Watercolour sketching practice 🖌️

Continuing with the watercolour practice from the watercolour sketching book by Paul Laseau.
Finding a way to workaround the limitations of using waterbrushes. I’m starting to be able to predict when it’s going to go ‘glug’ and chuck a load of water down the nib.
Also finding the limitations of the paper, how much abuse it can take with a combination of vigorous brushing whilst wet – here’s a hint – the answer is not much 😉

I’ll also be adding this one along with a failed version in a new article soon.
I’ve been meaning to publish some articles soon with regards to learning art but like a lot of the art projects it’s a case of starting off and then getting distracted with the next ‘new and shiny’. I think I need to lock myself in room with no distractions and type them up, exit refused until complete 🙄

          You mean I’ll need to re- learn this all again? 😭
          Ha, yeah, I have heard that oil and acrylic are different animals to watercolour. I’m fairly far from being able to stand in the street with a little pocket palette of watercolours. And decades away from being a beardy artist in a smock dabbing away at an easel with the oils. Reminder to self, order an easel, some oils and a beard.
