A sketch done from our holiday cottage in watercolour/mixed media in an A4 S&B sketchboo
We had wonderful views from the house, right left and front .... and even the steep hillside/cliff at the back had primroses and bluebells.
This is looking sideways when the tide is high, past a row of terraced cottages that climb up the steep track. That's 'our' garden ..... for a week anyway!
I used watercolour with some pen and a few touches of coloured pencil - oh and a little FW white acrylic ink, a new favourite medium, used with a bamboo pen or brush. It is really opaque and a clear clean white. so useful for surf etc when you've lost the white of the paper in places, I work fastish, the painting evolves and I don't always retain all the lights so use this or white gouache to regain them.
I like mixing media, choosing whatever will create the marks I want. I'm trying to catch a spirit of place and have no interest at all in rules about 'pure' watercolour ;>D Not keen on rules! it's art not science :>) How about you?
