Blue boat - watercolour sketchThis small (10" x 7") sketch, that took about an hour to do, shows a boat moored within a marina in east Southampton during an overcast June day. This was my first venture in to watercolour painting for many years, in fact the early 1990s was probably the last time I touched the medium. It is not a perfect example of the craft but gradually as I proceeded with the project, elements of how to handle watercolour did start coming back to me. It is a very different medium to the acrylic/ oil paints I am used to!
