Wet in wet

What fun I have had since I last wrote.
I have been forced to work more slowly,which is probably a good thing,as I have been trialling "wet in wet" with my board and paper thoroughly wet.Some paintings have worked ,some have not.I find it hard to know when I should add more paint or whether I should let it dry completely  then re wet the paper.I suppose I will just have to keep on experimenting until I become more familiar with the process.It is a challenge though.

A winter's day!

Two months since I updated my Blog.I have as much enthusiasm as ever and continue to strive to improve my painting.I have been trying to paint watercolours on hot press paper,wet in wet sometimes,using less pigment and attempting occasionally to paint without drawing up as I saw a recent visiting artist do.Looks easy when he does it!I must try to be more patient and wait before going back into the wet paint .
As well as watercolour I have done a few acrylic paintings.Some are successful,others not so good.I like to keep a record of my work so that I can refer back to it and sometimes wonder how I achieved a particular result.
