BASSENTHWAITE CALM – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I painted this scene many years ago, before I started this blog, and came across it the other day when I was sorting out my studio. I felt it needed some good darks to carry it off and running in strong colours can be quite tricky which is why I adopted the approach below.

Seeing my earlier attempt I thought that I would try again. Hopefully I have got the solidity and reflection I was after.
