This is 560 x380mm on Arches 300gm Cold Pressed.
This afternoon the whole family zipped down to the Dog Beach to take Mia and Sprocket for a spin. This is on the opposite side of Strand beachfront from The Pipe. It was kind of last minute so I cut a sheet of paper and grabbed my easel. I can tell that I have not been painting regularly enough. I used a palette that fits nicely in the easel. But some of the colours were dry and crumbly and others were wet and runny. How does that happen? I suppose it is different mixtures. And the palette was very dirty. Winsor green had dribbled across the wells. mmmm – I think I must be the most disorganised watercolour painter around. I have four different palettes! Who does that? And with the cost of colours, who can afford this?
Anycase it was fun down there. A slightly different perspective on the same mountains. We are enjoying the autumn days at the moment, with a little less South Easter.
Here is the first wash:
