152nd entry...rainy, rainy evening!

I continue with  the next development of my watercolour.

2nd wash - 2011
I have put a darker wash on, and pulled colour out. This is to give the foreground more strength and the painting more depth...and I have captured the misty effect that comes in the early mornings !...
I need to add a little darker to the horizon; emphasising the mist more...but all in all 'good effort girl' as Dad would say!
Next will be the final marks with a brush - and then charcoal...I hope that I haven't made it too dark for that, that is my only worry - but lessons are being learnt!

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
