This is my day 30 painting for the #30x30DirectWatercolor2018 challenge. Our temperature today was supposed to be in the low 90s, so I headed out early to do my painting before it got too hot. I did this sitting alongside a home in Sayville.
I have to say that working directly in watercolor has its benefits. It does make me observe things closely so I can see where the different colors fit. Landscapes and flowers seem to be easier than people or architecture. Anything that involves perspective is normally a challenge and a double challenge when you can't change things if they are wrong. I think direct watercolor can be useful at times, but I will be happy to be able to get back to using ink and sometimes pencil with my watercolors again.
