#WorldWatercolorMonth Day Twentyfour

A quick wash of blue for today’s watercolour as we venture out onto the open seas, where we stumble across an armada of sorts, seemingly bobbing aimlessly on the still waters. There are people on board each of those boats, but they aren’t clear from this distance, and they’re too busy to have their portraits painted anyway. I’d have probably been able to add more detail had I given myself more time, instead of the fixed thirty minutes! But still, I think there’s enough detail to see what it is…

    1. Thanks, Sue. I have to say that I think it looks better on paper than it does in the photo, but the overall essence is there, which I’m pleased with!

    1. I’m finding that the more time that is spent on an area, Laura, the more chances there are for things to go horribly wrong! Do it and be done, I say! 😀

    1. Thanks, Prenin. I think setting out to do something within any time frame is a bit of a challenge, but one worth doing. You never know how things will turn out in the end.
