Some watercolour doodles* just to say... we're off again in a couple of days (still blinking from our lightning trip to Aus) to our regular holiday haven, Arniston, for the Easter weekend. I am taking my sketching things, and hope to be able to jot down some sights and impressions, but don't hold your breath, as it is an invitation to a roofwetting, and a wedding anniversary and I think there will be much socialising and little time to slink off on my own to paint. The weather looks as if it may misbehave, too, as it is here - making a good impression of a London winter, in Johannesburg at the moment.
*I love making these calligraphic marks with very wet watercolour and my cheap, but faithful Chinese goat-hair mop brush. Somehow when I'm trying to paint a 'proper' watercolour, I lose the free loose quality of the brush strokes - I suppose going for accuracy, which is obviously not a priority in these rather strangely-proportioned horses!
