I love watercolour. I often take my old Winsor and Newton travel kit out with me when I am on a walk. I have had it for about 25 years! It is looking a bit yellowed and scruffy now, but is so handy. It is only the size of your hand and even has a mini water bottle! At the back there is a ring where you can hook it on to your thumb.
Watercolour was my first medium that I got to grips with. I still love it as you can get such purity of colour. People who think it is wishy washy haven’t seen good water colours!
I have mentioned before how I love the hills around me, I can’t resist the different colours they present at different times of the day and seasons.
Here are three views of the Tararua Ranges I did last week. (Different days)

I just love how the colours run into each other and the different reactions of the colours when mixed together. Sometimes I like to go completely abstract and let the colours do the telling.
This watercolour started out with me trying to paint a bunch of flowers that were given to me recently. I got so involved in the colours that I forgot they were flowers in a vase! I just love it when the process takes over and the head stays out!
Blessings to all of you and have a great week creating wonderful art everyone.
