My pal David sent me an amazing set of watercolour paints from Japan last month. The colours are strong and most are opaque. I have been doing some experiments with hem on a nice little pad of 6" x 6" high cotton content made by Papier Canal in Montreal.
I find it surprisingly difficult to just choose colours and do splotches of colour as an abstract painting and after a few peices, chose to work from something I could see. This was the view from the boat moored at Mohr Island on the Ottawa River, complete with the navigation buoy off the sandbar.
