Watercolour copies of Edward Seago

Edward Seago was a 20th century English artist, famed for his watercolours, although he used other mediums too (in art, mediums is apparently the correct plural, according to who I don’t know). Very popular with the British Royal family, which is not always a recommendation but I think he is good. We were trying to copy his faint, multi layered style, but using just sponges to apply the paint. No brush work at all. I thought the bright yellow one was just too yellow, but my wife preferred it. She said it just shouts “sunshine ” which is what we are all craving at the moment.

Not my favourite pictures, but I quite like them and they are useful practice.
