Here are the results of the last month's challenge effort with my friend Peter Ward. You can find Peter's version at www.watercolourfanatic.blogspot.com . There are lots of other reasons to visit his blog. His reviews of materials are of interest to anyone who loves to paint.
This month's subject was one that I set, largely as an exercise in drawing. These chairs are so difficult to get right and I spent a large number of attempts trying to get the proportions and angles somewhere near right. I was almost tempted to invest in a draughtsman's board with the whole range of rules and protractors. Frustrating indeed. My concentration on the drawing aspect overtook a more balanced approach to producing the picture. Consequently, planning the paintwork wasn't sufficiently well done with the resultant image being overworked and less that satisfactory.
