Watercolour, 15" x 11"
Bristol Savages, Wednesday night sketch and the topic for the evening - "a good prospect". So I interpreted this as a god view, here over rolling hills and maybe a location like the UK, Ireland or perhaps France. There were two main stages to doing the painting. First step was the initial wash, very weak at first and the stronger greens at the foreground. Then, almost a second wash starting from the top, defining the far trees, hedgerows, shadows and painting around the houses. Smoke was added as a last stage with mainly white paint with a hint of cobalt blue.
