Loose 'Fearless Watercolour' Venice Canal
This is based on a photo on paint my photo. I just dived straight in with my new fearless watercolour mindset. I am beginning to realise that most of my limitations as an Artist are in my head! My hands know what to do, Art comes from the mind. It is founded on my roughbrush technique, but in this I allow a conventional sable brush (Kolinsky sable size 8 from Rosemary and co- highly recommended), to behave like a rough brush. At the time of painting this I thought it may fail, THAT is the point to engage the fearless mind, I am going to produce more on this subject because judging from responses to my work on PMP- others want to do this! I was really surprised, I knew my friends on there would be polite, but you can tell when it's genuine. One Lady has said 'I want to do this' you can't be clearer than that.
