Another exciting day for me. I’ve made my way to second round judging……..

      

I have entered some sketchbook pages into a national competition and have made it to the final round of judging prior to exhibition! Now the judges need to see my work framed; so there was a heart in the mouth moment or two,  while I carefully cut out the watercolours that were needed! 

I especially entered sketchbook watercolours, as this demonstrates the way that watercolour is central to my working process; I make direct  recordings with them. If I develop any oil paintings, I find that they are a more accurate tonal colour reference, than anything else.
