watercolour sketch in Conte a Paris Sketchbook
So I tried painting directly with the brush ( no pencil first!) and only using two colours PLUS getting the full range of colours that I needed through using colour mixes, saturation and tints.
This sketch is what I achieved. I was quite pleased with this effort which didn't take too long. I remember thinking at the time that maybe all those life drawing classes were paying off!
The reason it makes it into my Travels with a Sketchbook blog is because I did it in my Goa Travel Sketchbook in December 1993! (Goa is in India)
