Added a touch of colour to my previous Parga sketch. The original drawing was done in a small sketchbook, but I managed to print it out on A4 watercolour paper and then add watercolour. This was a little tricky as the watercolour printer paper is thin and absorbs the water too easily. Quite happy with the result though and I have another in the pipeline.
We began art class this evening with the brief of painting a miniature. I chose to use a single colour, indigo my favourite for this type of thing. The reason being the intense darks you can get with this colour. No sketch here, straight in with the brush.
This are the tourists in Parga walking to the beach put Johnny’s bar. We normally sit at the bar and watch them come back to their hotels. Johnny’s bar is also a superb place to watch the car parking.
This is a Pen sketchave of a must go to taverna in Parga Greece. The lamb and green beans as well as the rest of the menu is superb. Great location, food and staff. Missing this place.
This pen sketch is the view down the steps leading to the castle in the centre of Parga in Greece. Walked these many times and it does get harder each year as the heat really makes you feel tired.
Another Parga watercolour. This is the view down past Johnny’s bar on the right with the blue canopies. We will be having a drink there again in the summer.
I’ve Done lots of paintings of Parga in the summer, but this one was done from a photo in winter. It has been snowing here lately and at the moment it is very cold. I used a limited palette to try and make this appear bleak.
Not painted a self portrait for a while. Not done any IPad art for a while either. This was painted from a photo taken from the desk at work with a bit of an unusual angle. The app used was Artrage.
had a look around Clitheroe today and had a spot of lunch….well a lot of lunch actually. Walked it off around the town and took the reference photo for this on the walk. It’s a lovely town and has a super castle too. Interesting shops and a market which was closed today.
Decided not to add any colour to this.
This is my second watercolour in a few days of Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. A lovely place to visit. Sad to think that just over a year ago it was completely under water with the horrendous floods.
