watercolour techniques - more splattering with glazing and coloured pencil added

12x 6 inches, Autumn Fields, Watercolour and coloured pencil on Somerset paper

This one started out as a demo for another group and I carried on with glazes of watercolour and some coloured pencil to pull it together.

It's important not to let technique take over and produce formulaic pieces - use the technique that makes the marks you need and vary brush strokes and approaches.

I think I'll add more grasses at the front as that looks too symmetrical ....


Very good advice especially for someone like me who is addicted to direct painting in oil.
