Watercolors are my passion..have no formal education..an enthusiast!!:music:

Here it is..my first attempt at a WDE...cropped the cactus on the way to the service station picture.
Watercolors on Canson
140lb/300gsm Cold pressed 9"x12"
30 minutes to sketch and 90 minutes to paint...

Am glad I tried this and timed it as I ahve an inclination to over work and go on and on...so keeping time helped!:evil:

Shall try atleast two more, but I guess I can post them only on Tuesday? How should I attach more images to this thread tomorrow?

Sorry am new..so the questions:-)


C&C PLease!!

This is wonderful Lakish, so fresh and vibrant. I like the 2 hour limit as well, it stops the fussing and fiddling and has saved many a painting of mine.
I am so glad you joined in and you were the first to post as well:clap: :clap: Well done.
You only have to wait until Tuesday if you want to start a new post. You can add as many as you like to this post whenever you want. If you add MI to you title it tells everyone that there will be more coming and it lets us know to keep looking to see what you have added.
