Now the thaw – Watercolour in a Watercolour Moleskine

After playing around with other paints I’ve decided to include a scene in watercolour – my favourite medium. I find the best thing about this stuff, when doing “Wet into Wet, is the way certain parts almost paint themselves (see the front area under the fence).

This is the reverse view of yesterday’s post looking towards Edinburgh from the top end of the village. The snow is almost gone in this scene and the grasses in the fields are beginning to poke through. We haven’t seen this since late November and the local farmer will be in a hurry to get this area ploughed so that the summer cereal crops can be sowed.
