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?

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.

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