So, this is my first foray into painting with watercolours. I am still an absolute novice when it comes to painting, but I am, I think, getting slightly better. I have a tendency to use too much pencil when sketching out the basic image with the result being a 'muddy' patch - see the bottom left-hand corner.
That aside, the picture is based primarily on a scene that I imagined, but, when I came to sketching it, I had trouble with getting the sea in perspective. Luckily, Jeannie had been 'home' to Saint Lucia and there was a picture amongst her snaps that I was able to use to get the right colours and perspective.
Voila! Saint Lucia as imagined by me.
