I thought I’d try out the Sennelier watercolor block I discovered the other day buried in my studio. Watercolor is a medium I’m not terribly familiar with. I did maybe 10-12 large watercolor still lifes back in the late ’80s, but otherwise, I have mostly avoided it — except for small watercolor pencil drawings (paintings?) over the last few years — until just a few weeks ago.
This time, I soaked the paper pretty thoroughly, taped it down, and started to paint. Hours later, the paper was still mostly wet, and the colors were still bleeding. So, this is messier than I’m completely comfortable with, but there it is, FWIW.
