New quarter sheet watercolours


The quarter sheet is a wonderful size to work on in watercolour (in my opinion). Watercolour was not originally a medium for large works. On the quarter sheet one has enough room for broad sweeping strokes with a one or 2 inch hake brush and to allow watercolour magic to happen, but is small enough to enable the whole surface to be monitored relatively easily. This is important as timing is critical. These are 4 recent works done as class demonstrations.

I did not have any left of Cradle Mt which is why there are 2 new ones here (intended to be out pre Easter…. oh well it is the painting I enjoy, not framing, delivering, pricing etc.). As long as I play with paint the subject is usually irrelevant to me.
