Leaf study – ink, watercolour and digital, 175 x 210 mm, 2012.

This week’s sketch was a bit of an experiment. I wanted to see how watercolour behaved when applied to art board. Now I know. The biggest surprise was just how much water I could wash over the surface without it buckling.

All it needed was a little poem to finish it off (so I wrote one).

    Your lovely painting and poem are very complementary together Anna ! I love seeing how people ‘simplify’ their sketches to great effect .

    I’m getting very motivated to try some line and wash sometime in near future : )

    BTW, thanks for dropping by and liking my art.
