At the moment, time is in very short supply. Around here, anyway. But, every now and then, I have to make time to do something just a little different. Or not, as the case may be.

I haven’t done anything in watercolour for about ten years now, so decided that the time was right for another go. And, as coincidence would have it, Charlie’s adventure this month over on Doodlewash is ‘Travel Memories’. Nothing coincidental about that, I hear you say, but today’s prompt is palm trees. And, as luck would have it, I’ve painted a pair of palm trees. I may have checked the prompt out briefly beforehand, so those of you who thought there was nothing coincidental in this were actually correct, all things considered, but I did have the urge to do a ‘beach scene’ earlier in the day.

So. Here we have it. A very quick splodge and splattering of colour to keep my hand in with the #WorldWatercolorGroup… I did promise Charlie I would do at least one watercolour this month… I may just do another. Time permitting.

    1. Time’s a bit tricky at the moment, Sue, it’s fitting everything in that causes the issue, I find… but there’s always that one moment!
      And yes… the colour’s changed once more… it will be changing again soon, however… October’s on its way!

      1. Yes I am sure Halloween and Autumn colours will be playing their part.. We seem to be keeping the leaves on trees longer this year not a sign of them falling much around here at the moment 🙂

        1. They’ve really started falling here now, Sue… although there is still a lot of green left as well. It’ll change soon enough, though.
