Watercolour, gouashe and pastel

I had a go with watercolour, Gouashe and finally fix-it pastel yesterday. This is from my inca trail experience and was one of my favorite memories of the place. I might carry this on in digital, as I dont like how much black I ended up using... Im getting used to the traditional way of things...slowly.

Plein Air scan

Here is a scan of the actual painting. I am going to get more paints soon as watercolour pans just dont give enough pigment when you are in a hurry!

Plein Air

I went Plein air painting on sunday, which is to say I sat on a rock like a lump and argued with my watercolours for an hour... without much luck. BUT, it seems to have gone into my head, because I just tried to paint the same scene from memory and it worked relatively well... such is the power of digital.

I will post my actual watercolour/guashe attempt asap. it will be funny to compare!
