I draw the sketch of the painting straight on the watercolor paper. Most of the time it is just a rough idea of what I want and where, and the details come in as I paint.
My painting process takes approximately 1-8 hours depending what is the size of the painting and how detailed it is. I rarely paint anything bigger than A4, and most of my paintings are something between A5 and A4.
I prefer to finish the painting same day as I started it - I get anxious and bored easily, if the painting takes more than one evening to finish. It also tells me that my vision is somehow working if I have a smooth, quick flowing mood while I'm painting.
