Watercolour of Tenby, Wales, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms
A painting based on a reference photo used by a fellow watercolour painter who did a demo at our local society one evening recently (if you follow my drift). Steps were 1) sky and continued was over whole painting - blueish at the top and a bit warmer down the bottom. 2) Background buildings and roofs were allowed to bleed into the walls. Left a highlight of a thin broken line for the top of the harbour wall. 3) Boats, growing darker towards the bottom, then the channel of water. Darker pigment was dropped in to create soft reflections. 4) Figures and masts (white gouache).
