Pen and wash.

Pen and wash is simpler and decidedly quicker, I did this this afternoon as a companion piece to the other Lake district watercolour. Original and framed versions based on a photograph..

Indeed, indeed, Repentance oft before, I swore---but was I sober when I swore?
And then and then came Spring, and Rose-in-hand, My thread-bare Penitence apieces tore.

I shake my head every time I see one of your paintings. The detail and composition and colors are always spot on. How does he do it?

Keep em coming, your work is very inspirational.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

A post like that is inspirational to me Dick and many thanks. If I had one thing to offer besides an intense love of painting I'd say it would be "be adventurous with colour".
Is a hen's egg really brown, or is that just what colour we expect to see? Have another look...... In two simple examples below, both simple ink and wash, to illustrate my point, there isn't one single item in either that is actually that colour in reality. That's the beauty of art..I apply this principal to all my work wherever I can. There's no one definitive colour for the sea or sky...they're how you want to see them. Be bold.......
