At the end of the day
Feeling very inspired by the last few beautiful acrylic paintings of the wonderful Dorset coastline by Lisa over at Seaside Studios, and in anticipation of the upcoming holiday to the very same coastline, I thought it would be useful to try my hand at a seascape. I did this partly from imagination and partly from past experiences - visual memory as it were. It started as a pure wet in wet watercolour but I added a little gouache with a hog brush to give a little sparkle to the sea. It looks reasonably convincing but I have a few photographs from previous holidays to use for reference so I may do a couple more practice runs before I get to paint the real thing :) If I don't post again for a little while, have a super relaxing weekend everyone.
