AND FAR AWAY – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1100586(1)

I wanted to try another single colour painting and thought that yellow might be worth a go. I wasn’t happy with the outcome as the tonal range was too shallow. Plan B was to mix a blue with one of the yellows. I selected winsor lemon and added varying amounts of French ultramarine. The ultramarine allowed me to get a bigger tonal range and hopefully a sense of calm and light I was after.

At the end I glazed the whole painting, except for the sun area, with winsor lemon. Not sure about the effect as it softened some of the features, but once done there’s no going back.
