Yes, definitely prefer this version, Margaret, the pen gives it more definition. (Like you, I usually use pen and ink with watercolour, I like the more illustrative look it gives.)

I agree, the pen work adds to the scene.

Thank you Dennis, Jenny, and Stephen :)

This is what I prefer, Margaret. Lovely pen and wash now, my favourite technique.

Yep love the pen work, it just finishes it perfectly.

Lovely, beautiful colours

I prefer this version Margaret as the pen work gives the painting depth. Charming little piece.

Thank you Mia, Jennifer, Emma, Carole and Dennis :)

Haven’t come across the pre pen watercolour yet Margaret but I love this one.

Thank you Fiona and Carole :)

Hang on Studio Wall

Thanks to your comments Jennifer, Rachel, Mia and Jenny, I have added pen! (and a little extra colour in the clouds and water) I would love to be able to do beautiful traditional watercolours but mine usually look better for a bit of pen (and I do like pen and wash a lot)
