Three watercolours on paper - a departure

I normally regard my sketches as roughs and not really as finished work. I have always used watercolour and watercolour pencil with biro - yes horror of horrors - biro -to make on the spot sketches. I KNOW THERE ARE RULES ABOUT WATERCOLOUR AND INK - and for good reason you should use proper drawing ink because biro is not fade resistant. BUT I am a fool. I like immediacy and scribbling and flow.

If the resulting drawings are framed and kept out of direct light they last for years.

I usually translate these sketches into plaster - but they do have an immediacy which I like.

Someone commented at my last exhibition in Sept that my style is very 1920's - 30's . I was not fully conscious of this but I am inspired by the art produced in Britain around that time. I place them here as work in their own right.
