Out of pratice

Brought out my watercolour today - small palette and waterbrush - and sat in the garden with my watercolour sketchbook. I am so very out of practice with this, and since I only started sketching intermittently in watercolour last summer, the result is some very fumbling work.

too many greens

This was the first attempt, and I tried to do everything - as usual
out of practice
Very muddled and a sad lack of both focus and definition.

And the second attempt, where I tried to do much less

Rather fresh and slightly boring, but otherwise okay.

Being able to do outdoor sketching again is so nice :)
