Day 304: Practice Paddle Plant

Paddle Plant (Watercolour)

Paddle Plant (Watercolour)

I started a painting today that I hope will help my practice at controlling water and mixing pigments on the paper… this is a Paddle Plant, I believe. I’m afraid I have no idea of the Latin or proper name for the plant, I was simply attracted to a specimen at my Pilates class and wanted to try and capture the shapes and colours.

Practise today started really late due to a longer than expected AGM meeting at our local German club (of which we’re voting members) so I haven’t got as far as I’d like to for one sitting. There has just been one wash on the plant pot and a few leaves have been filled in – watch this space for the next instalment.
