It is grey and wet in London today so I thought I’d post this, my little watercolour duckling, who would, I have no doubt, have a great time paddling about in the drizzle if given the opportunity.
I have certainly seen a positive development from my first watercolour, Mr Robin, through a few different techniques to land on this. I have found that it is a real skill to be confident in using the blank of the white page as part of the painting, something I would never do if working with my more comfortable medium, acrylics.
(P.s. This Duckling can be for my Mother who loves ducks, we used to have seven when I was younger and lived in the countryside… here’s a little one for you Muma.)
