In between oil painting, I have recently been doing some direct watercolour studies. With these I just paint directly on to the paper, no pencil or drawing as a guide. The aim is to do the painting directly and in one go, no further washes or additions. There needs to be a little blotting here and there to lift out some colour, otherwise it's all direct. 12x9 ins on Fabriano artistico 140 lbs paper.
