Playful Landscape – Watercolor sketch and study

Playful Landscape - 3 x 6.5 inches

Did a small whimsical landscape last night on a 3 x6.5 inches of cold press watercolor paper.  I called it Playful Landscape because the watercolor I used is mostly right out of the tube and all I did is dilute it with water to lower it’s intensity.  It is a quick watercolor landscape study and I like the way it turns out which is simple and quick.  After all the watercolor layers are dry, I outline it with a permanent marker and make sure that it is free and loose to match the mood of the painting.  This is more a quick sketch than a watercolor painting which many people try to do on location.
