Back to the Drawing Board . . .

. . . . well, painting book.

Steady rain from midday spoilt any chance of sneaking out for a mini-expedition to Far Pasture this afternoon, so I got on with a couple of small sketch-paintings of damsels, just simple black detail on top of a couple of cobalt blue washes, an idea I'd been toying with and waiting for the opportunity to put to paper.

Azure damsel watercolour (6x6 ins.)

Blue-tailed damsel watercolour (6x6ins.)
It sort of worked on this small scale but the detail is lost a bit and I'd like to get a bit more interest in the background washes, and as my aim is to show what beauties dragons and damsels are I think I'll try it out on a lot bigger canvas.
