The Pond ~ watercolour 15x11 in.


Super, Michael - you make it sound so easy! Lovely trees and reflections.

Terrific result Michael.

Wonderful work. I envy your very quick method with such good results Michael.

This is really good Michael. Fresh looking with lovely colours and a strong composition.

Well, the slap it on quickly approach worked marvellously!

A beautifully painted piece, with a great balance of wet on wet washes and hard edges. Super work, Michael.

Really super watercolour Michael

Works very well Michael. Despite the 'Slap-it-on' it looks very considered but loose. Terrific painting.

Good free work Michael, I often enjoy working from the imagination, less temptation to fiddle!

Thank you everyone.

If only my slap it ons were like this, unfortunately my attempts end up in the recycling bin!

Thank you Maureen & Val. Val - so do quite a few of mine !

Very nice work indeed.

Hang on Studio Wall

I felt it was a 'slap it on quick day' so this is my imaginary scene 'The Pond' painted quickly this afternoon. No drawing involved, just washed in a quick sky and then made it up as I went along. It is is quite fun to try these quick ones with no constraints sometimes. Rather impressionist but I hope the scene makes some sort of sense!
