Mr. Perkins

It's a while since I have done any water colour painting, probably not since I was in art college, as I have been either painting digitally or with acrylics.  About a month ago I had the urge to get out my watercolour paints and as soon as I dipped my paintbrush in the water and ran it across the paint pan, I remembered the joy of painting with watercolour.  Here's my first attempt (I should have stretched the paper first I realised afterwards).  I decided to paint a sketch that I did back in February, a doodle of a dog I named 'Mr. Perkins' (please click here to see the earlier post).  It's just a small painting, about 6 inches by 4 inches :)
