Doodling with Paint


Working from Jean Haines' book, I followed her instructions for negative space - not as pretty as hers, but it does what it says on the tin. I need more practice at painting directly on to the paper without drawing first. It takes some courage to just splatter paint on the white paper and hope that it will produce something.

Cornflowers - just playing with colour and paint.
And just for something to do .........

Hi Anita. Nice to see you playing with watercolour! I very rarely draw first and try (I say try) to paint directly. If I don't, my work ends up looking a bit too 'colouring book'!
