More Unsettled [watercolour, 11”x15”]


Lots of interesting skies lately around here.  I watched Eleanor Lowden-Pidgeon paint a demo at Mentor’s day on Saturday and I wanted to give it a try.  The paint is applied with very little water so it doesn’t flow onto the paper, rather it gets pushed and dragged thickly [for watercolor] across the surface.  It takes about ten times the amount of paint but you get very rich darks.  I used some white gouache for the foreground highlights and some cloud forms.  I lifted out the road in the foreground with tissue after wetting the paint and agitating it with the brush.  Enjoy!
