Noon on the Common




5"X7" Watercolour on paper



I did something that I don't often do today, I sketched outside and then tried to turn it into a painting at home, without the aid of a photograph. Usually I either paint directly in plein-air, or use either photographs alone or photographs and sketches to create a painting later. I have never had much luck painting just from sketches and this is no exception. Others seem to do it brilliantly. Still, it is probably something I should work on.
