The Ornate Fireplace watercolor and ink by Meera Rao
I am always wondering how loose or tight I ought to sketch or color. Mostly I get carried away and want to put down all colors I see! Here, the solid feel of the towering brick house with the overgrown bushes was as much fun to sketch as the delicate ornate years old fireplace.
I used Koi travel set and Pelikan transparent watercolor paints. I also quickly learned that the texture of paper was too rough and not made for much detailed work.
