This year I have also decided to try watercolour.
Strelitzia – 140lb hot press mould made paper by Daler Rowney with Schmincke watercolours. Windsor and Newton Series 7 watercolour brushes.
And the same again, but this time using pen and wash.
First go at a portrait. I didn’t spend a lot of time on this as I realized the scale of the piece -A3 – was perhaps a little large for the brushes I had, and I lost quite a bit of the fluidity you’d expect of a watercolour. For me, portraits are best in acrylics or oils.
