Friday in Barnes

Here we are at Cafe NERO with water brush and a small tin of half pans. Sketch and paint. Got too much paint on the page, having no tester sheet, and no rinse, just the water in the brush handle. 

I’m quite happy with the drawing. I’m not quite happy with the painting. So many things wrong. May try overlaying some blue! 

Actually, I did. Prussian Blue over the trees, and onto the grey windows. Definitely balances the blue in other parts of the composition and also makes the red redder in the building on the right. Also went over some outlines in 8B to strengthen them. 

Afterwards, visited Olympic Studios and Sheen Lane for more sketching. . .

  1. Well, I’m not trying to be rude but an initial wash of diluted cobalt blue might have given you better contrast, but then again that’s just my opinion. Did enjoyed the post. 🙂
