More Fresh Air

When the opportunity comes to spend time with the paints it should be taken. So while I was out with the oils painting the rocks and beach I found myself with some time left before heading home. Fortunately the watercolour stuff was in the car so I decided to use the little time left to splash some of them as well. Strange thing, when I use oils I like to stand, with watercolour I quite like to sit. I wonder why that might be?

There are some flaws in paint application with this, trying to get another glaze on without checking how dry the layer is makes for problems. Lots of fun to finish the day out.

Lovely fresh looking watercolour Mick. The sky is beautiful too, you have captured a fine day by the sea so well.
