Sketchbook Scans: Watercolour Landscape

I decided to do a bit of watercolour sketching outside yesterday, since I am interested in abstract representations of landscapes. No sooner had I set up an easel and paints outside, when the rain came down! I repaired to the kitchen and painted the view from the window instead.

I thought that the brush strokes on the wall in the foreground and in the near field were what I was aiming for. The second furthest row of trees and shrubs was too pale and muted, however. The nearest greenery should have been brighter and more defined.

I will try more attempts at landscapes. I particularly enjoy the layers and lines that are formed, and will try to make some abstract versions for interpretation in textiles and stitch.
