editing images: lost edges and contrast
Mawgan Porth, Moonrise, coloured pencil and gouache on a deep buff paper
Originally the cliff top showed more clearly against the dark clouds, paler. It jarred, I didn't like it, so I sat down to create a lost edge - the cliff top edge barely visible against the dark cloud. I like it better. This is another in that sketchbook with the deep buff paper - you can see it in places in this and the other images.
I also added a little white gouache to enhance the gleam on the water, moved the moon (with the flick of my hand!), added a ring around the moon and I'm happier with it now..
The clouds haven't scanned well - they are softer with more subtleties and changes of colour than is picked up here. I think it's finished.
