A couple of weeks ago I had lunch with my Aura and Calvin at a Restaurant where there was a corner with a beautiful yellow glow. Here is how I have tried to recreate this in watercolour:
This is watercolour on 300gm Arches Hot Pressed and is 560x380mm.
Here is the painting process.
First the initial attempt to get the colours and values about right:
Then I started with a more detailed drawing, taking account of the characters in the photos I had taken.
Here is the first wash. I put Alizarin Crimson under the places where I was going to put cooler darks so that there would be a warm glow below the cool.
Here is the first detail. Too tentative I fear.
Darker washes in the background
And here I put in the foreground darks.
