Two paintings


Two little Watercolours on one page in my moleskin, one is from a view down a lane in Greyton just recently, and (left) the other a view from above in Simonstown. Both taught me a lot about painting outside in this medium. About being loose but compositional in the early planning, then intensifying focus with each wash and brushstroke. Finding a view is never as hard as I at first think if I am concentrated on doing a painting. Below I have framed each separately for a finished look.
