Continuing on the shed theme – I sketched this delightful garage. It wasn’t really turquoise more a pale green…but you know me… anything slightly near turquoise in colour is a good excuse for using Cobalt Turq Light! I like the limited palette I used here and how it is quite different from my usable blue-orange(earth orange) colour choices.
Lambton has lots of quaint cottages like these (love the car too!). It was a very hot afternoon and no shade so I couldn’t find a spot which suitable to sit and sketch from. I afterwards thought that I should have attempted my super quick watercolour pencil approach standing up… but it just didn’t occur to me at the time!
Friday night I stayed at the wonderful Newcastle’s B&B.
Last visit I sketched one of her everyday teacups and not sure I ever shared it here.
It is an example of watercolour wetness getting out of control. When that happens I normally just leave it to dry and let the pigment work out what it wants to do all by itself…
