Not something that I find that easy, they are so much more delicate, almost impossible to rescue if I make a mistake or something doesn’t work out. In oils or acrylic I can either wipe it off or paint over it. Not so in watercolours. Recently, I’ve been concentrating on two things.
Firstly on colour – using a very limited palette, just three or four colours at the most.
Secondly on simplicity, taking the key elements in scene I am working on and leaving out everything else, something I find quite tricky.
However these latest paintings are going in a direction I like and I’m going to do more.
