A bit of slapdash !

Alloway Parish Church.
Watercolour in a Moleskin
Bridget Hunter 20012

I'm not sure what I think of Moleskin sketchbooks. I love the look of them but adding watercolour to a sketch can produce surprising results. There is of course the watercolour version but I'm not so keen on the format.
This was done very quickly as the weather was bitter and the paint was splashed on. But I like the effect of the finished wet paint on the slightly glossy paper.

Across the road from the Parish Church is Alloway Auld Kirk, which features in Rabbie Burns poem "Tam O'Shanter" and was the subject used for my postcard to Liz in Austra;ia.


  1. I really like the splashing of paint, Bridget. Great painting.

  2. Thankyou. There's just something wonderful about letting it run and seeing what it does.
