Newquay Harbour, Rainy Day, 6x3 ins approx
More testing of Derwent products and again with the Fisher 400 paper. I do love this surface for working on.
Like the Derwent Coloursoft pencils, the Artist Pencils work beautifully on this sanded paper. Colours went down richly and overlaid and mixed really well - whites actually reading as white. There was a good range of subtle colours that I could choose from to mix and overlay. So necessary to achieve the soft grey green and a hint of pale blue and viridian in the sea, palest pink and cream that shone through the sky a little.
It's just a tiny sketch which I wanted to keep loose, not getting into overmuch detail, wanting to catch the misty air and the soft colours on a very small scrap of paper.
Not an Emmet in site (old Cornish word for mosquito - now applied to tourists ;>D ) - all quiet with the sea softly rolling in, no wild waves today, and the gentle subtle colours of sea, sky and stone.
The Drawing Painting series will continue in a day or so :>)
