I have been asked to come up with three biggish watercolour paintings by sometime next week, along the lines of these oils that I painted and sold some years ago - sort of township/street scenes with a bright and lively feel! Next week! Eek! Eek! I have been madly gathering materials and references, and done some preliminary sketches and now have to actually start, and to be honest, I don't quite know how - all those figures, in watercolour, and in the time I have, I don't think that much detail is an option.
I think I'm going to do all three of them at the same time, so that while one wash is drying, I can carry on with another one.
If the client likes them, he may commission more to decorate his offices, so wish me luck and wave me goodbye... for a while, until the panic is over - see you next week!!
