More landscapes done as part of Kate Johnson’s Watercolour Pencil course
Not feeling up to much tonight but looking through some of my Scottish photo albums (I have 6 of them ie. I have been 6 times!!) and doing some quick WC pencil landscapes.
WC pencils are more forgiving than plain watercolour. This one was a real disaster in terms of what I was trying to achieve but I somehow like the end result as I reminds me of how wonderful the Scottish highlands look on a dark wet day!
This is my favourite – the colours are quite realistic to the photo I took. It is almost incredible to my Australian eyes (used to bright harsh light) that this is a photo taken at midday – the shadows are just so blue.
Final landscape.. just a quickie…Time to call it quits. Actually it is quite ironic quitting on this particular sketch since this was as far as I got on the day we tried to walk to the top of this stunning hill – I had to turn around due to a very heavy head cold… and I have just the same one kind of one tonight!
I am looking forward to getting my teeth into next weeks lesson now.
