First watercolor of 2009

I had not touched my watercolors
in almost four weeks!
I bought a Sennelier panoramic format
watercolor paper block
that I really liked at Dick Blick.
The paper measures roughly
9 x 4 inches.

Beautiful! Oh I wish I could paint like that, or even at all ;-)
And the photo composition is beautiful as well. :-)

I just bought some watercolour paper in exactly the same shape. However my painting is no where near like yours! I've had a 12year break from watercolours and am very rusty! (Also my eyesight has started to go! I think I need to go and get them checked! Very frustrating when you are trying to paint fine detail!)
I love your work and it is the reason I've gone and dug out some watercolours! Thank you

WoW! I have just discovered your blog and what an inspiration! I love your latest watercolour. Actually I love everything!!

How do you get the fish scales to have a white outline when using watercolour?

Can I ask what kind of watercolor you use and what kind of pens you use for your journals?

I love that kind of paper and have been using it for some time.

I'm so impressed with your work! It's just so inspiring!

Love the panoramic format. Strathmore has a 6"x12" book of 10, linen canvas pad for acrylic that is a lot of fun, too. Your illustrations are beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
