This time, I decided to approach the same subject as if it was a sketch - drawing in ink (pen and brush pen), then adding watercolour. I'll try not to worry about where it will get me!
Maybe I should have stopped at Step 2? Nice vibrant transparent colours. But I wanted stronger darks in the water and the trees. And more texture and colour in the foreground grasses - done with oil pastels. And I left out the ducks this time!
