When I can't paint a subject of my own I like to paint the work of painters I like, in this case Mel Stabin the American watercolourist. I like this loose style that's akin to Charles Reid and his work, a painter I use to illustrate watercolour techniques in the classes I teach. To avoid spending hours trying to get an exact replica it pays to set a time limit, in this case an hour.
