Just completed another Watercolour painting after Geoff Kersey.
This one is a view looking back from Boggle Hole towards Robin Hoods Bay on the Yorkshire coast. The reference photo for this painting is a very good composition that takes in a lot of foreground and middle distance reducing the size of the skyline in the far distance.
The challenges with this painting were getting the aerial perspective right and keeping the tonal values balanced with the other colours in the painting from the sky and the sea. It was interesting have the foreground rocks as the point of interest.
I have received excellent feedback on various social media groups and received my highest numbers “likes” for this painting so I hope that you all like it as much as I and all of my friends seem to do!
This is painted on Arches 300lb block paper using White Night professional watercolours. This is my first painting using this particular weight of paper and I have to say that it is wonderful to work with, takes plenty of water without reacting, allows lifting out very nicely and also takes a lot punishment along the way without showing any signs of a problem.
