Colours used: Prussian Blue, Indigo, Phthalo Blue, Cobalt Teal Blue
Paper: Fabriano Artistco Watercolour Paper, 100% cotton, 140 lb Cold Pressed

I enjoyed doing these quick seascapes this afternoon. Both measure approximately 6″ x 4″ – just the right size to go into my watercolour sketchbook. Both were done on 140 lb watercolour paper.
