Mini studies-watercolour of Blueberry fields

Keeping with the thought of inspiration, I was given at book on watercolour journalling that gave me the urge to try watercolours! Yesterday I thought I would pull them out and see if I could paint anything that excited me, knowing that it will be necessary to pack lightly next week during the Olympics. I painted this little study of the blueberry fields yesterday and it was so much fun! The process is quite different than oil or acrylic. There are a couple of things I would do differently but on the whole it was exactly what I was looking for.

This is the book I was given in case you want to give it a try.

Interesting, that part was the most fun! Nearly painted themselves.
