Good stuff, I like the upside-downess, and it's a lovely solid bit of drawing, nice form on the boat, and nice details.
Somehow it's very satisfying to look at, which I think is a good thing :)
Is this just an experiment or is it from anything?

cassia said...

it's a bit of both, Jon. It's a character piece for a text I'm looking at, but it's also an experiment as the publisher is interested in me working in watercolour.

I think the thing that's mainly weirding me out about this is that you have to make colour decisions as you paint. photoshop is so much easier to faff about with.

I'm also not sure if it starts to make my work too cute. I do appreciate it brings out the drawing though, which is what they're mainly after.

Hello, I am procrastinating today and have been reading through your blog. I think this is BEAUTIFUL, I don't know why you say you find watercolour difficult, you are very excellent at using it! x
