Barcelona: Early evening on the Rambla la Catalunya

Early evening on the Rambla la Catalunya, Barcelona.


Ink and watercolour on paper, 9 x 28 cm. 18.05, 7 November, 2014

Another sitdown needed! It was getting dark, and I wasn't sure I could paint in the fading light. Managed to get the drawing done before the light went, and then the colours were added with a lot of optimism.

Really it's too busy and crowded to draw comfortably here, but we need to sit down after that climb up the hill.

Blue-grey at the top, graduating down to brown-grey... Hang on, isn't that just more of what I did on the last layer?

Print in progress 4

More ink, and now at last it's starting to look like something.


Blue-grey at the top, graduating down to brown-grey.

Print in progress 3

More ink: mainly blue-grey over all the buildings to create the shadows.


Print in progress 2

Another layer of colour: a darker blue, and a darker brown, and a touch of gold. Already, I think that the subject matter is clear.

Not much to see yet.

Some blue at the top, some yellow at the bottom.


Playing with paint

Paint looser. Just putting some paint on canvases in a vaguely landscapey way, to see what happens.
