Well travelled pebbles in watercolour


I had hoped to be able to share the next round of collagraph prints but I am in between stages waiting for ink to dry still. Unable to continue with them I have returned to watercolour and whilst the medium dictates a completely different result from the prints the theme is the same.

Replicating some of the marks and textures that I had made in the prints with watercolour and a little gouache has made some interesting areas. I also used more granulating pigments in the mixes especially the new love of my life Daniel Smith's Sodolite Genuine. I can see I will be getting through the tube rather quickly.

Not a bad way to spend time waiting for ink to dry.......

Beautiful the way the pebbles appear to be tumbling. Very nice watercolors

While waiting for ink to dry, you create more beautiful paintings! I so love all the Daniel Smith granulating pigments and have a lot of my own favorites but he's always coming out with more :) Lovely watercolors and so peaceful and calming - I could see these in any little meditation nook, in a bathroom, or bedroom, or room overlooking the sea. I have a feeling these are going to be very good sellers :)

Hi Carol, Caroline, Judy and Maywyn thank you it felt good to stretch my watercolour muscles again.

Hi Rhonda, thank you too. I didn't know more colours are added to the range I will have to keep a look out. I've only become aware of them in the last couple of years and absolutely adore them. Thank you for the heads up.
