Charles Reid - watercolourist

Charles Reid - watercolour on Fabriano rough 300gsm - 18cm x 25cm

I was watching a video of Charles demonstrating his watercolour technique. I've long admired him for his portrait and figure work and less so for his landscapes. I thought I'd try his restricted palette of cad red, yellow ochre and cerulean (plus a couple of other minor ones).

This little sketch came after a day of oil portraiture and was a real relief for me.
