well good luck with it - I do love the simplicity of watercolour - and those delicate washes of colour!!!

I love it too, as you know. but watercolour will always be somewhat whimsical

Remark went home ;-) Know what you mean, got the picture

Btw. Homer and Sargent have been among my favs for many years. Love the American impressionist's watercolours

I always dodge the whimsical charachter of watercolour by using countless layers, After the first one dry I add the next . Masonry, sort of. Only in the last layers I use wet in wet. The process is time consuming. One watercolur may take a week or ten days. That's why my uploads take so long.

"it is the simple stuff that is most difficult "
I know, "Less is more" holds true
and that's where I fall short

OMG! She looks sooo cute when she's sleeping! O u O Hehehehe... I'd totally draw circles around her nipples with a thick black pen, just to look if she will notice it and wake up! >BD I know I am evil, but I am a woman with nearly no shame and my good half is actually on holiday. :giggle:
