Practice

At the Turner watercolour workshop Toni urged us to keep practising what we had learned to embed it into our skill set. So I’ve been working away on pages of small works.

I also painted two views of Mt Tennant experimenting with warm and cool compositions and some lifting techniques.

Then I tried some imagined landscapes and weather effects, with varying degrees of success.
