Catching up- Lanchester Monday Art Group.

First -demonstration of watercolour by Andy Taylor of a picture from the internet of water, island, trees and mountains which he did not know its location. Painting with three colours, flat bushes ( which he called chisels) and three pots of water- he maintained that he must keep his watercolours clean.
After an internet search it turned out to be a screensaver which had been reversed horizontally.

The actual view is Lochan Urr in Glen Etive Scotland.

The picture I started on the first session I torn up and started again with the correct view.

Lochan Urr

Grasmere Cumbria
Similar view from an old sketch book. Both on Saunders Waterford hence the subdued colour with not a flat brush in sight and only one pot of water.
