Watercolour and Ink on Paper
14cm x 28cm (5.5" x 11")
Maggie Latham's tutorials on Ink and Wash were the inspiration for this picture.
I’ve not had the time to follow all the exercises, but they are interesting reading and I am experimenting with some of Maggie’s suggestions.
The picture is completely different to my previous ink and wash drawings (see Ye Old Dog & Partridge and Holiday Sketch).
For this study, I drew the palm with an old sharpened twig and applied the watercolour washes with a dainty decorating brush that Elaine gave me for Christmas.
I had not intended to post the drawing. My plan was to present a picture from yesterday’s gathering of the Shelford Group of Artists, but I didn’t finish anything. The subject for the day was Still Life and I spent most of the day drawing.

Who would have guessed that bottles and flowers could be so complicated? Why didn’t they tell me?
