Whimsical Watercolour

Expressive and spontaneous

expressive and spontaneous This painting is my version of Claude Croney's Captain Poole's Shed. 

I can't say that it is my favourite sort of subject matter but I do love the loose style and the minimalist approach. It feels lovely to look for the big shapes of colour and key lines and place them in rather quickly. Feels like the quick gesture drawings that you do in figure drawing class.

I must have that sort of personality. I think it is impatience. That's what Claude seemed to think anyway:

  "I prefer watercolor because of its unpredictability.  The medium seems to fit my personality: I am impatient, and watercolor has a certain spontaneity and immediacy that appeals to me." Claude Croney
