Good morning, how are you, long time since the last post, ... basically the summer has been busy with kids!! Over the summer till now and continuously I have been seriously following my absolute favourite watercolour artist Alvaro Castagnet. I just love his passion when he paints, his bold colour choices, simple and large brushstrokes!! I have been studying his 'Watercolour Masterclass', looking his DVDs ... . Well, he sure is my inspiration! I have learned to enjoy watercolours for quite a long time already but in the last couple of months or so, I promised myself that I will take it seriously now and will practice and practice. I have my loved watercolour paper - Arches Rough 300 gsm in different sized blocks (which just works better for me than individual sheets!) and Daniel Smith Watercolours, and of course my extended fingers - the watercolour brushes (let me tell you, after long testing - the pure squirrel mops just take a lead!), and here I go! I thought that if I don't start to publish my practice sheets then I would not gain that confidence I am after. I am a beginner and everybody starts from somewhere! Here I have 'Dublin at night' on 18 cm x 26 cm paper.
