Cityscape – A Rough Reunion

When I’ve been away from watercolour for a while, I do tend to get a reminder of how difficult I actually find it.

This time it came through my first speed painting in months.

I wanted to just get the feel of it all again.

So I cut out a small piece of paper and had a quick go.

My aim was not to make something to show off, but rather try to make it look okay.

It turned out like this:

It’s not that I’m disappointed.

It just felt like a rough start compared to the series of landscape paintings I did last time. 

But I need an experience like this to get going again.

And to be reminded that watercolour is not something you just splash together and always end up with a good result.

So now I’m ready to start.

I’ve gotten my reality check.

I would love it if you left me a few words
