Fifth aquarelle and sketch

Fifth aquarelle and sketch

15 August 2017

fleurs rouges

This is my fifth aquarelle which has proven to be very ill-assorted to the alla prima technique as the paper was not behaving in the expected way. Upon testing all possibilities I realised I had painted on the wrong side of the paper. I was, however, too lazy to begin again the aquarelle on the other side so continued as it was.


The result is a very dry looking composition of flower. I hope you will not be too harsh in your judgement.


Meanwhile I also decided to take back sketching as a hobby and have produced this sketch. I find its not so bad considering I am self taught and this is done after several years of not drawing anything. I hope you like it.

    • Thank you Derrick. I love doing many things. I was quite hyperactive as a kid and jumped from one thing to another. Perhaps if I had been persistent then I would be really good at something in particular like flute which I wanted to learn but stopped too early
