Line and Wash – Rocks and Countryside and Gulls

Well, after the ‘Octopus’ I had another go at a line and wash watercolor.  It was still difficult…I just can’t seem to get it to look how it looks inside me.  The colour seems to come out different every time I use it.  It’s quick to do and less messy than acrylics but I find it really difficult.

I kind of went for a simple country, seaside rock and seagull type thing.

Here’s the ink:

Here’s near the end…

And here’s the final picture:
