Direct Watercolor Challenge

I have been doing the 30x30directwatercolor challenge as often as I can. Nothing big and ambitous: just little pieces, each 5×7 or 6×8 inches in size.

The spirit of the challenge is to paint bold and direct without fussing too much.
Here are some pieces from the challenge:

A plate of tiger prawns. Makes me want to be in Goa.
The Jacarandas are in bloom in San Jose
Bird-of-Paradise

I never find this challenge easy. There is always a stage in the sketch when I want to revert to what I know well. But like most things slightly outside my comfort zone, the challenge is really good for me. So I’m keeping at it.
