The Vanishing Point, Sketching in the New Journal

Taking tips and compositions from Watercolour Landscapes by Richard Taylor, I painted this without removing the paper.  Not as easy as I imagined, but then again not as hard either.  I guess it is one of those things you have to get used to.  In fact, I think it slowed me down – which can be a good thing.

Taylor has two other books (perhaps more?):  Townscapes in Watercolour and The Watercolourist’s Guide to Painting Buildings, both equally good and full of projects and instructions that make you want to paint.  I tried another, and while I’m moderately happy with the results, even after five tries, I couldn’t get my scanner to focus on both pages so the top page stayed blurry.  Taking a photo was out of the question as well because I couldn’t get it to lay flat.

So use your imagination.
