Loose style

Sunrise, Inner Harbour, Dartmouth

Dartmouth, Devon, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I'm doing a lot of pre-wetting the paper at the moment, to get a soft glow to light in the sky and the reflection in water.  So here I applied to a scene I have done a few times before - the inner harbour in Dartmouth, Devon.  I don't normally do a red sky, but went for a bit of atmosphere in this one and keeping it loose.

St Foy la Grande - A loose one

St Foy la Grande, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I went a bit looser on this one - especially at the bottom/foreground.  Plenty of water and hold my board at a steep angle.  Let the watercolour do its own thing.

Sunny approach to old town Albufeira

Albufeira, Portugal, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A walk down the hill into Albufeira and the Old Town.  A bit of a strong contra jour this one.  Always a key thing in watercolour to get those contrasting values and silhouettes.  This was a bot of a wet in wet with the initial wash and the sky coming down over the buildings.
