Landscapes and Seascapes
The transient effects of light on sky, sea and foliage are inspiring or tantalizing when I stop looking and try to record them. The translucence of watercolour has a light of its own. White paper is there under the washes to illuminate, and left untouched, to enliven the surface. I need to choose just a few colours. If I put them on in layers, the underneath colour shines through and changes the subsequent colours on top. Sunshine or shadow changes them too.
