Wickwar Road, Chipping Sodbury


Watercolour of Chipping Sodbury, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms.

The Wickwar Road junction with the High Street in Chipping Sodbury.  Steps for this painting 1) Sky wash starting with weak yellow ochre on the right and getting darker to the left.  Wash continued down and warmer for the base wash of the road.  Careful to paint around car tops, road sign and figure.  2) Background buildings, then buildings left and right.  Added a second light wash to the road.  3)  Cars done with a fairly light wash but lower areas and car shadows with really dark pigment.  4) Completed with figure, street lamp and road signs.  A few dry brush strokes over the road to break things up a bit.
