So, my first attempt at a watercolour. Not quite spot on with the colour of the apple, but faithful to my love of fuchsia!! I got a little watercolour palette (Cotman's) at Island Blue to use as a travel palette. It's got 12 different colours and quite a bit of room for spreading water around. These aren't artist grade colours, but I believe one can fill up the trays with tube colour once they're are done. I also got a couple of travel watercolour brushes, the kind that have their own water reservoir. They're fun and easy to use. And to clean: just squeeze out the water until the 'brush' is clean and off you go again. Perfect. A fun exercise. I think it needs a bit more colour in the background box, though. I'll ponder.
