The 30×30 Direct Watercolor Challenge started June 1…
The idea is to begin to paint directly with no inking and no real pencil work. (I cheat.)
If it were not Marc Holmes thang, I might not try it.
He is really one of the best teachers around.
On the other hand, I love linework, and so, I don’t know if I’ll like this.
One thing about trying a challenge now and then is what you learn from it —
and I hope that perhaps I will learn a bit about a couple of brushes I don’t use much.
Some who lie painting this way use their daggers and liners in place of linework.
But so far, meh!
