Anderson House Watercolor

I've lately returned to my favorite watercolor journal with pen, ink and watercolor.  I sketch out with an India ink pen, in this case a Pitt pen in black. Next, I lay down a warm wash which fades into the sky color.  I paint in the shadow colors before laying down the central hues.  I did use real watercolor brushes here instead of the water brushpens, but I forgot to use my new sword brush!  With the extra sizing in the pages of this book, the real brushes are much more effective.  The brushpens were getting gummed up with sizing, but I still use them on the fly.  Painting number 1669 in 1669 days.
