Great idea Sally and Kevin, I love his watercolours as they seem more lively than his oils, I think he got jaded doing so many portraits, no problem to you Kevin to try his methods

Delighted you managed to download and that you enjoyed it.  Im a bit hesitant to recommend such a thing to an experienced watercolourist like yourself.

Many thanks for these links Sally, I used the second one to 'cut to the chase' as they say. Really enjoyed it and feel good more than ever now with my own out of doors equipment.

I've just indulged myself in watching a video lecture on Sargent's methods in watercolour - fantastic.  You must have a look :

Hi Barry, thankfully these two 'Tommies' are not dead, but merely catching forty winks before their next action.

Cheers Sally, thank you. Yes, he was some man for the watercolours alright.
