I choose a palette of colours, pencil in a collection of swirls or an object and paint. The washi paper absorbs the watercolour and doesn't allow for much layering. The colours are surprisingly vibrant and it holds up to me adding ink once it's dry.
I have found these quick paintings immensely satisfying and entirely fun. All too often I ponder and plan and I rarely just do and play.
Do you find more satisfaction in quick studies or large, planned projects?
