I bought three new watercolours this week, Turquoise, Poppy red and Quinacridone gold. The only way to find out how they behave is to splash about with them. I got a little carried away and added ink using a twig then sprinkled some brusho powder to give some explosions of intense colour. This is to celebrate the sudden realisation that creating art is not about copying a scene but using the elements os that scene to create a picture. I am sure that is not an original thought but it is a revelation for me!
