THE LEEDS TO LIVERPOOL CANAL AT CRABTREE LANE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1090736(1)

This painting was worked from one of the watercolour sketches I posted  on 19th June. I have done this view before in late autumn and the barer trees and autumnal colours give it more of an edge but working in the early morning sunshine was very pleasant. I have been able to get out a bit recently, when the weather allows and I’ll post more of the sketches soon.

Other paintings are on my website grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. Thanks Laura. The light is created by an initial yellow wash and then going in with darker, drier, colours with stippling whilst the first colour is damp. There may be further darkening by stippling when this is dry. Sometimes, instead of stippling I use splatter on the dry yellow but this takes time. A great exponent is Joe Dowdon. He does some great tutorials on his website.
