I'm a bit late posting this. On Thursday I did some experimenting, trying to decide whether to take a small watercolour paint set with me to NZ or just my water colour pencils, or both! I also managed to get a little acrylic painting done as well, trying something quite different this time. My family weren't so impressed by my attempt at a boat on the water! I did try to explain it wasn't finished yet and I hadn't spent a lot of time on it, and when I showed them the picture I was painting from they did agree that it was 'similar'...hmmmm
Both need more work, but not sure I will get time before I set off for NZ at the end of the week.
