I chose this painting today because it is the only picture I have of a watercolour I have done. It is not the only watercolour I have painted, I did in fact do two similar versions of this painting and I have done one or two small landscapes. But this is the only one I have a picture of. I have no pictures of any others because I have given them all away. This one and the one like are now in the possession of a magistrate and a clerk of the court.
I used to serve as a judge in the court. This was a job I did over and above all the other things I was involved in, in life. While a teacher I was allowed by the education authorities to take days off to do my court duties. When I finished teaching it became almost a full time job. I gave it up only recently to give myself time to paint.
While still involved in the court I tried one or two watercolours. One of these was bought by a fellow magistrate the other I gave as a gift to somebody when they were given promotion. Another of my watercolours was sold for a charity. The one or two others I cannot remember where they are or who has them. Whoever happened to be around and the time if they liked them were given them.
Now after looking at some of the work of my friends and fellow bloggers I was thinking of giving watercolour another try. I put this on today to ask you what you think should I or should I not? It is kind of like Katherine asking should she join or not?
Now before you answer my question please read my first blog. This way you will know what I am looking for.
