Sketchbook Skool - watercolour skies

For this week's class in Sketchbook Skool, the teacher took us to India, where he was painting beautiful watercolour skies. Well, it will be a while before I'm anywhere exotic, so I decided to paint the view from the upstairs window, which is pretty good - no complaints here.

Looking at my watercolour sketches, you wouldn't think I was painting the same view, with the same trees, but each day I would notice something slightly different, and of course the light was changing too. The second one is my favourite for the trees, and I like sky # 1 and sky # 4 best.

And I learned that when a sketch doesn't work out, you can just turn the page, and move on!
