Glencoe watercolor step by step

As part of Judith Farnworths challenge on PMP in the loose watercolor group I saw the view of Glencoe in Scotland and had to have a go! I may add this series into my newest book for kindle which will be an introduction to loose watercolor. It is fairly small, masked area just 3.5 x 8" I wanted to show that these types of paintings do work at smaller scale too. Often we think of loose paintings as quite big works.

Great step by step Roy..... always good to see how you work and yes interesting about the size... I think I might have a go at a smaller size for this one and see how I get on....

Anyway... great step by step....always looks so easy when you do it but we know it's not - right!!! Thanks for the links to my blog as well...
