Apple on Wooden Block
Watercolour on Abaca Rice Straw (Light)
I spent a couple of hours labouring over an apple. It was a bad apple. Out of frustration and a sense of lack of achievement, I grabbed this little paper sample and painted a very quick and spontanious apple that I was much happier about.
It's often the way - you have to spend the hours doing the labourious and uninspired in order to do something quickly and more lively.
