151st entry...

A blustery day here in the Forest...
I am doing a watercolour in developmental stages - never before have I been so interested in experimenting; five years at college, of which I loved, but I was never SO fascinated in anything as I am in the movement and layering of watercolours. So here are the photo that I used and the first wash!
Photo used - 2011

first wash - 2011
Started by spraying the paper, then adding different dry watercolours...finally, with a bit of finger and brushwork, a spray of water again...
I shall try and do a bit more tomorrow!

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
