watercolor sketch 24 x 26 cm. Inspiration for this painting came from a picture of a garden vase with a rosemary bush in front. Not much preliminary drawing … this made the bush in front rather difficult for me to paint . I finally used my new watercolor easel. I wanted to get a feel of working with an easel instead of a table. At first I felt it was out of control, water flowing down, colors bleeding into one another. I'm slowly getting the hang of it. I think I am going to enjoy experimenting with this new approach. I am happy this is finally the last day of February! It has been a tough month to get through in spite of its shortness. Does anyone else agree?
