  1. I want to be able to make watercolour sketches like Bouzianis' Dieppe drawing...looks as if it took 5 minutes, longer would have over worked it. It captures the mood, the detail, the weather, the time of day...such a talent.

    1. I agree with your analysis, Avril. It's a wonderful painting.
