Most of my paintings at this blog are “color notes”. They are small pieces of paper that I have painted at random, while working with some larger works.
There is something interesting in them, so that I can´t throw them away. Perhaps they hide some ideas or solutions for future paintings.
Today I learned that William Turner, the greatest of all watercolour painters, left 20 000 unseen works, 300 of them watercolour sketches, labelled as Colour Beginnings (John Blokley: Watercolour, practice and progress 1985).
