Plein Air Watercolour Studies

Daniel Smiths Raw Umber Violet watercolour studies in daily journal

I got really sloppy and soaked the study on the right, the paper buckled but the surface stayed in tact and it did not bleed through to the back...Pretty impressive! The book was closed when dry (which was quite some time) and left on my studio desk overnight. The paper is now quite flat again...I did not put weight on top of it either.

These DR Ebony books take ALOT of abuse!

Seems I've missed quite a few of your sketches...and you moved onto a new sketchbook! I really like these studies...monochromatic paintings are always so interesting.
