Live Sketching Waterlilies in watercolour

https://youtu.be/VCsT0cT2YtI

Join me as I do a quick sketch of waterlilies on, what I call, the lost pond. We’ve found it now so it isn’t lost anymore! Water lily leaves are basically circular so, to draw them from a side view, they need to be ellipses but all set on the same plane.

I didn’t have very long to do this, about half an hour with set up time. The video has only about 30 seconds edited from it. I drivel on a bit, but I hope some of my chat is useful. Otherwise it’s a nice, peaceful, sunny afternoon by the pond
