End of the road st gerauds

Bergerac, France, 15" x 11"

Just an ordinary country lane with a bit of negative painting - painting around objects to keep their lighter value - as in the tree trunks on the right and the round road sign.  However when it comes to highlights on figures, sometimes you've just got to reach for a little white gouache.  As you can see, I don't mind cauliflowers in watercolour.  I sometimes encourage them and they really work I think in foliage.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
