Killing the paper

For me it is impossible to relax when there is an unpainted sketch stretched on my drawing board.
The white paper teases and taunts me, daring me to make my mark.

The first bold stroke of wash kills the paper.

I am in charge, or am I?
Of course the very reason I love water colour must be something to do with my impatience.

It is necessary to work quickly with no time for hesitance or regret.

Am I satisfied with my achievements?
Never, however there is always another piece of white paper calling.
