Paints on a Plane

Here are three postcards painted using two of my favourite colours, Windsor Yellow and Windsor Violet. I made these flying at 35,000 feet en route from the USA to London. They are attempts at trying to paint wet on wet – using an aquash brush to supply the water and a normal paintbrush to provide the paint. I struggled to get the paper wet enough at first, and on the third attempt I got it a little better but then over did it with the streaks in the sky. I continued this experiment at ground level and will share the next stages over the weekend. Meantime, these three sketches are on their way to a friend in Scotland.
