The unfinished watercolour
View of Ailsa Craig at Culzean
My attempt at practising a gouache painting turned out to be a bit of a non-event. I've gone painting before without water, without thinners, without coffee but never before without paints - well, the gouache paint anyway.
So it became a watercolour practice instead. I've absolutely no confidence in using watercolour apart from in a sketchbook. I'm still too impatient to wait the time for washes to dry and past attempts have ended in dull, overworked disasters.
However this watercolour, though unfinished, is my best attempt to date. Maybe using gouache that watery way is a good place to start.
