Looser..


I've been looking at some fantastic watercolour artists' books lately, namely Jean Haines and Ewa Karpinska, who both use this beautiful medium to its absolute, watery best.

See Jean's website at http://www.jeanhaines.com/ and her blog watercolours with life.

Neither of these artists sketch their subject before painting - that alone would fill any watercolourists heart with fear .... add in very wet wet-in-wet techniques and theres a recipe for fully fledged terror... but it can be fun! Here's what I did with the roses in my garden, they were starting to wilt a bit..
