Why do I always like them better cropped into squares!?
One of the last images in my Hahnemühle Watercolour Journal…
wobbly paper makes for a wobbly sky wash… cropped it is interesting,
but larger looks like a bad wash! Let’s call it Wobbly skies!
Every so often I forget how much I don’t like opaque watercolors and give
MG Cobalt Turquoise another try… It is a perfect color, if only transparent.
I’ve been using inks so much I’m needing to switch to my watercolor mindset again>
This was painted fast, as a sketch in about 15 minutes (without drying time).
Bay of Fires, Australia.

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
I also created an accompanying Flickr group!
