Freshly Picked by Dianne  Ilka

Approx A4 size, Schminke watercolour and ink on Fabriano 300gsm rough watercolour paper.

Although I’ve done a few watercolour in the past, I tend to avoid them because I think they are too difficult. After trying on Yupo paper a couple of days ago, I thought I may as well give it a try on some “real” paper as well.

For a beginner, I’m pretty happy with the end result
