I've not had a lot of time to devote to my art this week but I have been having a lot of fun trying various watercolour techniques that I hope to use in a bigger painting that I keep promising myself! I also haven't managed to get out to do any sketching so I used an old sketch that I did about nineteen years ago (where does the time go?) as a reference for this little 7x5 watercolour. I had no colour notes so I had to rely on my memory and invent a little bit.
The location is a beautiful little village called Laycock, a place I used to walk to and sketch when I lived and worked in the nearby town of Keighley in West Yorkshire. I just liked the composition at the time and really glad that I never binned the original sketch :)
And as a footnote and as requested by my blogging friend and first follower Sandra, here's the original page from my sketchbook. Personally, I prefer the old sketch ! What do you think ?
