A watercolour sketch on ledger paper

I read that some Urban sketchers favour old ie more than 10years old accounting ledger paper because of the quality of the paper.Well, yes the paper is good to sketch on,but as soon as it gets a sniff of water it buckles. Worth the try though.

Here,s another one

Water colour on Aguarelle paper 24 x 32 cm using Schmincke watercolours. I preference these over Windsor and Newton the colours are more vibrant I think. The Lightning not as easy as I thought it would be leaving it plain white by masking the area didn't have much impact,so I used white Gouash and softened the outlines. Might be back to the drawing board with this one.

This is the Maude Foster Windmill in Boston Lincolnshire at dusk.Its in Acrylic and is 20" x 16'.

Here,s a watercolour of Daisies.I,ve tried to paint it in the style of Janet Whittle a Lincolnshire artist.It,s quite small 5" x 7".
This is a bit of an experiment I,ve tried to capture a cold windy day.Dont know if it works let me know.It,s Acrylic and is 16" x 12".
I took a photograph of this when on holiday in Spain and have painted it several times,but wasnt happy with it, so I took a different tack and made the hulls more vivid and interesting.It,s a watercolour and is 8" x 12".
