Watercolors Practice

When I'm short on time, looking for inspiration, or checking to see how a painting works, I often get out my pen and watercolors. The pen is to challenge and grow my drawing skills, so not to get too fussy about my marks.

The transparency of watercolors and the light airiness they give to a painting is such a contrast to the thick application of oil that is used with my palette knife paintings. It's always a nice change. Here are some of the little paintings in my journal. You might recognize a few of them from works I've also done in oils.
