Thank you Linda, when I can I paint on daily bases, but sometimes it is almost impossible, and then I draw indeed in stead. like the small sketch I did in the article. takes you just minutes! And I love to share!

You always make simplicity look so beautiful Edo. I love this little painting!

Happy New Year! Very nice! I see you're off and running already. I have been inspired by your prolific output and dedication to painting everyday. So much so that I have promised myself to paint everyday, too - even if it's just a small watercolor. And I also plan to do at least one sketch per day. Thank you for sharing your work!

Thanks Larry, sometimes I have a painting half done. (I thought) and after a lunchbreak it looks done! Or I show a friend what I am doing , and then she says dont do anythoing more! its good how it is! To stop on the right moment is hard, you need to paint with a open mind. And prepared to change your plan how to do it in the first place.

Seeing weโ€™re talking of tips and suggestions what about the Zbukvic one โ€œ more paintings are ruined by the thought of I think Iโ€™ll just do thisโ€. The original painting is fine, leave it alone. Not every suggestion is right for us

Its good to see if it could be working. its always a bit different then the real paper!

What a great idea, I often destroy many 'good' watercolors with that addage, "I'll just do this one more thing". Brilliant idea.

Thanks Phillippe, I have some wesel and wolfhair, but also the soft goat hair! (white cloud) best for calligraphy. I prefer the wolfhair or Orchid brushes for watercolour! They are really good! Regards Edo

Nice article, Thank you Edo. Chinese calligraphy teacher adviced to work with goat (the soft white). It's more difficult but we learn more how to handle an control the strokes. Anyway, its difficult with watercolor because it runs too fast out of the brush. Easy with chinese ink for there is some glue in it. For watercolor use, I prefer to use sheep brush, it holds the liquid more longer.

Thanks Rene, the line and wash paintings from Wesson were most of the time done in just three colours. And the paynes grey is closest to blue so it gets blue when you look at such painting. amazing how a mind works.

Good article. So far I never used paynes in the sky (in urban scenes the sky is less dominant), it makes sense. Thanks for suggesting, I will try it.

Thanks Edo. I definitely need to check in more detail the properties of the yellows I use! Thanks again

Greens are sometimes very annoying to paint. I paint them with transparent pigments, it is for me the way to keep the light. glad it helped. best wishes Edo

I don't like green either, but I found the best way for me!
