A comparison, direct watercolor versus linework….

I’m struglling with the 30×30 Direct Watercolor Challenge.
I’m doing it because marc Holmes is such an amazing teacher —
I learn things from him all the time and his work is so exciting —
So I want to trust him and go along on this ride.


I miss lines.
Above, grisaille then color… no lines.

Oh give me lines lotsa lines under starry skies above,
Don’t fence me in (with your non-linear stuff)!

Listen they are both fast because I has to be because I couldn’t sit easily
due to the bursa but I got so much more pleasure out of the lines and
water touching lines and watching the lines move into a body of something…

I’ll keep at it until next Friday and see how I feel about it.
Nothing ventured and all that.

    I look forward to seeing where you are at the end of 30, Kate. I suspect you’re as good a student as you are a teacher.
