Had a great day painting.

So, I did some watercolour painting today. I did 3 paintings. I painted the sky of one painting and while I was waiting for it to dry I painted the sky of the second. I was using the Have Some More Fun method of Frank Clarke. Have - Horizon Some - Sky More - Middleground Fun - Foreground So what you do is you draw the horizon line first with a ruler. Don't put it exactly half way up because it won't look right. Then you paint the sky, then the middle, and lastly you do the foreground. The first painting I did was a mountain scene, second was a misty hill scene and finally I did a woodland scene. I enjoyed doing it, but I don't think my trees were very good. Other than that, I really like what I did.

I will try to remember that. It does sound as if you did indeed have fun. I am sure your trees will improve as you do them more.

Do you have some pictures? I did some work on a pair of vintage walnut stereo speakers that I am restoring.
