Another large rough brush watercolor of Lake District


The title says it all, I really enjoyed painting this one, no drawing, just went for an impression, in watercolor, of the effect of light over the hills. Mainly ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson for warmth. I was pleased with the way the clouds flowed in this one. Painted indoors from a couple of photographs as reference. I didn't try to creata a particular location in detail. I really wanted to use the rough brushes in a painting that did not have foliage texture, but did have textures on the hills. I used a hairdryer to speed things up, took just 45 minutes, and a cup of coffee while painting. Deep Joy!

Jon, Not affiliate marketing the Art (although it may be worth thinking about!) I have considered affiliate marketing my DVD; still just selling them myself from roughbrush.com and ebay. Also selling offline.
