Breaking out the brushes
It's only natural that having decided that I'm going to get into water colours that I go and launch into oil painting with brushes. Having spent years being frustrated by the brush I've just spent a couple of wonderful days playing with the way it can softly blend in colours. I started fairly tightly, slavishly trying to imitate the scene but eventually got seduced by the brush marks themselves. This picture isn't quite finished but I'm very pleased with it so far.
