More watercolour nonsense

You all know how I like to play with my watercolours and call it 'watercolour nonsense'. No no no, you don't need to tell me it's not nonsense, because it is and that's exactly why I like it.

I especially like to use my most expensive watercolours for this and I totally encourage you to do the same. Don't waste time postponing using the good stuff until you have something that you consider worthy. That day will never come. Play with the good stuff and it will free you from that kind of ... eh... nonsense. If you can't play with it, how are you ever going to be able to work with it when it counts?

Here's four pages from my big (A4) moleskine watercolour book.

All I do with these is draw an outline in a 4H pencil and then colour it all in. I love colouring stuff in, it's meditation on paper. Really, if you can't draw, just shapes and lines will do. And if you're afraid of those, get yourself a colouring book, they make amazing ones for adults. Or wait until a miracle happens and I finally finish the colouring book I'm making for you all, haha. It will come, some day, I promise, some day, really really....;-)

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy week!
