30×30 Direct Watercolour #6

Number 6 painted from life, again, in slightly better light. this time We both sat at the table, in direct sunlight after lunch but as I painted a a thunder storm came over and I found myself adding darker and darker washes to keep up with the darkening skies.

30×30 Direct Watercolour #4

Once again I left this until the evening. And it felt more like a chore than a pleasure. I sat in the dark hallway, without my glasses on, and tried to paint my daughter from life. She kept moving and I couldn’t see the page. I expect there’s some good learning here and I hope to get more into it for the remaining 26.
