Sunset Swans, 7 minutes
Sunset swans 7-minute sketch watercolor on Arches cold-pressed paper
I am not terribly fond of this painting, but that's not entirely the point. I have a tendency to labor over watercolors and overwork them, so I wanted to spend some time painting as quickly as possible to learn o work quickly and not labor the painting. However, I was unhappy with the previous one and spent two more minutes adding a touch of blue. I may want to redo it more carefully. But I need to do these quick sketches, like finger exercises, even if they do not always turn out well.
