Blue boat Line and wash watercolour

I love the line and wash watercolours of the late Edward Wesson, here I have used a sharpened stick and ink to give a varied mark, once dry I laid in the watercolour wash in a loose style, I find that this spontanious way of working gives the work a fresh lively effect, your comments would be appreciated.

Mist our border collie puppy in watercolour

Here we have a watercolour I painted of our border collie puppy "Mist" over the weekend, It was taken from a photograph of her when she was twelve weeks old, even though she is still only seventeen weeks there is quite a change in her, she is so adorable.
