Pebbles and Stones
A little study of some stones I picked up on the beach. I can't resist smooth coloured pebbles and stones, my bag gets really heavy after a day by the sea. Most of them go into the garden and they look lovely in piles or in plant pots.
This is watercolour and coloured pencil with artistic splatters to represent the sea and sand!
My new watercolour book arrived a couple of days ago, so I'm going to have some fun trying out some of the different techniques....which book? You'll have to wait and see!
