Remnants

 One of the features of watercolour paints is their versatility. Though the medium was reserved for socalled 'cartoons' and studies for monumental paintings in other media centuries ago, at the latest with W.M. Turner the medium was acknowledged as a legitimate alternative to oil paints, which had taken priority ever since their invention.  
I searched through old external disks earlier this evening and found a few photos of earlier watercolours I would definitely describe as aquadoodles. Since then I have become more adventurous.
