Watercolour Demonstration - How to paint a street scene with cars and people
Horse Street, Chipping Sodbury, 4

Montpon Railway Crossing, France


Montpon Menesterol, France, 15" x 11".

A road junction and railway crossing in the French South West town of Montpon, dominated by a large building.  I decided to make a feature of the shadows and let watercolour do what it does best - blending, running, bleeding and creating interesting patterns out of some boring dark shadows.  Adding a bit of clear water at the right time while it's still moist adds another dimension and a little bit of splattering.
