Is anything better than nothing?

Sketch of Svartlöga

I am going through a period were my time for art is limited, I have to work as a webmaster for 6 weeks during July and August. I know that in order to be a good artist I have to practice everyday which is basically not easy.
So, is painting for the sake of painting a good idea? This sketch which took 2 hours over two days is a case in point. It’s not a masterpiece but I feel at least I have painted something; I have learned a little, a small step – …on the lonely road to mastering watercolour.

This sketch was painted in a Moleskin watercolour journal 29 x 21 cm, the paper is not cotton but I like the challenge of its inferior qualities.

  1. Fantastic color palette, great use of white, incredible texture in the rocks, the sky as usual in yours is fresh and clean, but, yes you should know me, always a but, I would try a little offcentered position, I don´t know why I find more expression in the composition when it´s less regular. And keep on painting not for improving but for pleasure, my pleasure of course.
