A book and two paintings

I'm loving looking through Wil Freeborn's book, Learn to Paint in Watercolour with 50 small paintings.

Although aimed at beginners, there's plenty in it for more experienced painters and in any case, as with all these books, its enough to find inspiration in looking at the work of another artist.

Wil has a really nice website and flickr photostream too.

I've been continuing with my series of 10" by 7" small paintings of buildings.  This time I tackled a National Trust property Mottisfont Abbey and also a branch of Waterstone's bookshop in my local town of Lewes, East Sussex.  The Abbey painting was sketched out in pencil first whereas the bookshop painting is line and wash.
