My first ever attempt at scenic watercolour. This is Lion Island off Pearl Beach, Central Coast, NSW. My watercolour set is five colours only (and no white!), on white acrylic gesso primed canvas sheet.
Since I never enjoyed "painting" in colouring-in books with those ubiquitous watercolour sets as a kid, I have always resisted buying a set as an adult. I suddenly remembered being given a 365-days paint-by-numbers desk-calendar 2009, which I'd never used - and it contained a brush and little cakes of black, green, yellow, red and blue.
