Into the sink we go

I'm getting to quite like this technique! With paper stretched tight on a 'Ken Bromley' Stretcher, the watercolour has begun, then I think it needs softening and pushing back before the next stage. So into the sink we go with clean water fully emerged and a soft hake brush to tease those edges or little disasters! Out of the sink a tea towel thrown over and pulled swiftly off and then left to dry and lets hope it doesn't have to go back for another dunkin!
Here's painting 2 of Windermere, I had a go a few weeks ago and wasn't happy with the result ( http://lakelandart.blogspot.com/2009/04/do-i-or-dont-i-i-do.html)I think I like this more.
