more walnuts  ....enjoying the freedom of painting  just  watercolour washes ... painting from life , no pencil ...the colours seems even brighter with the continious  rain and grey skies ..paper is still wet so it will dry alot lighter.... "wet on dry"  "wet in wet" .

Hi Jane, how do you find working from life, are you enjoying it? Do you feel the watercolour challenge with Maggie helped improve your watercolour technique? I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful soft watercolour washes of your field studies.

Hi Jane,
i love this series and all its colors and looseness. It's so funny how a subject takes hold and won't let go til you're happy with it.
