Oh the agony

Switching into watercolours is as painful as ever. I decided to put this little one up just to encourage me not to get back into the comfort zone of oils. The way I work is by laying down what end up being hopelessly muted washes and then slowly building up the colours over the day. By the end I start to flow and the picture hopefully pops out of what sometimes can only be described as a horrible mess.
I'm going to hang on in there and hopefully get into my stride by Thursday.
