Here is my June Sketchbook with all the 30×30 Direct Watercolour pictures. Best viewed full-screen. There are a couple of non 30×30 sketches hidden in there too.
Done! 30 watercolours in 30 days; no pencil sketches, just paint.
Still working on the spontaneous and colourful effect that I triggered by switching to French Ultramarine.
Switching out cerulean blue for ultramarine, the greenhouse yesterday was very bright and colourful. I liked that and tried to achieve the same quick-and-colourful effect here. This is about 5 minutes painting. Or, at least, that’s what it felt like.
The water butt on the right of the greenhouse has a space in it which I left to put a plant in. But I forgot. I like it as a little window into technique.
Couldn’t get the interior shadows dark enough and, finally, too many washes bled into a grey mess.
