Uphill Marina #3 - Getting the values right

Uphill marina river axe #3

Uphill Marina, Weston-Super-Mare, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A third painting of this lovely location on the River Axe.  I must get down there when the tide is in.  I think I got the values better on this one with the distant hills and stronger values in the foreground.  Might have been nice to add in a few more posts to help the composition.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Sherston Plein Air Painting #3 - looking up the High Street

Sherston plein air painting #3

Sherston, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A third painting from my summer day trip to local village Sherston.  Love the bunting out in the street and a great tool to link two sides of the street from a composition point of view.  I normally avoid painting cars side on, but here I think it works by not making a big feature of them with all the trimmings and wheel arches and so on.

Sherston Plein Air #1

Sherston plein air painting #1

Sherston, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

First plein air of the day at Sherston with the 'Exiles'.  This is looking down Church Street.  Picked this spot primarily because it was in the shade.  I think with watercolour plein air, a key consideration on where/what to paint is 1) get comfortable, then 2) decide from there what to paint..
