Some thoughts on aquarelle

I have accidentally written my regular post on another blog - and I cannot easily put it in here - I'll have to re-do it (grrr) but luckily there was more last Tuesday:

Sandra's experiment...

And it actually looks great!!

The different approach of aquarellista's is of course that if you don't like your painting, you tear it up and throw it out. When in doubt, you can keep it - a painting on paper doesn't take much space- and work it out later (that's why we hardly ever varnish). And when you are sure that the painting is crap - apart from one part - you get rid of it - apart from that part! Hard to do when you create oil paintings on canvas nailed on wood!! (hehehe)
