Work commitments this week have slowed down my painting....My large canvas was getting me very frustrated, at this stage I put the canvas away for a week or two and then return to it with new eyes....In the meantime I got out my watercolour box and doodled around. Usually I mix watercolour with other mediums, or rip the painting up and use it for backgrounds to acrylic collage, but in this painting watercolour is combined with just a bit of watercolour pencil. A couple of years ago I visited Marrakesh...this watercolour was based on a photo I took on a day trip away from the searing heat to the coast...I love textiles and the colours and textures of this market display fill me with excitement!! I think I bought one of those bags, or one very similar.....and if I had taken a larger suitcase probably would have brought back a few more!
My number five is a sunny September sky filled with the red arrows..photo taken this morning from Morrison's car park!!
