I wasn’t going to post this as I thought it was too similar to the Orange of two posts ago, but I thought it might be useful. I was working on the top Persimmon when it occurred to me that it was becoming overworked and I was losing it’s freshness. Not what I wanted at all. However I was delighted to find that I could lift out most of what I had painted with a wet brush, waited a little and then started again. The paper in my Moleskine watercolour sketchbook doesn’t seem to have minded at all despite the treatment I gave it. Well done Moleskine !
This is good news as it gives me the confidence I can be a bit braver when I’m using it outside on location – which won’t be long now that the Lockdown has been relaxed a little in the UK.
