'Rough Brush' large watercolor of Lake District


This is my first go at a largish format of watercolour. I did use SimmTrace to place the mountains accurately, because this is a specific place. It is the road leading to the start of the climb to the top of the 'old man of Coniston' Probably do more of these. I have always been put off by the price of large brushes for watercolour, so I decided to use a large 'sash brush' from a DIY store! Then discovered that the 'randomness' of the brush had pleasing results. So I nipped into the shed and found a selection of old housepainting brushes... 
I did finish off details with a conventional small wc brush.
