A Splash of Watercolour

While I'm in the mood for posting. I'm sharing a little urge I had.

Watercolour is a challenge but its unpredictability is fascinating and compelling. So the other day I thought I'd abandon all fear and carefulness and jump in for a splash (literally) of the stuff! No setting up a still life, no planning, no careful draughtsmanship, just acrylic ink, imagination, years of failures, my homemade bamboo
(leycesteria actually) pen and blobs of gorgeous, wet, glowing colour.

It was very enjoyable, I have to say but maybe I'll do just a teeny weeny bit of planning in future.
