Finally a bit of sun!


There were actually shadows on the buildings outside our windows yesterday, a bright cold sun managed to find it´s way above the horizon in the morning. What a relief after all the gray weather we´ve had lately.

I´m trying to limit my choice of colours working on these views, I think it´s a good practice not to use all fourteen or fifteen or whatever it is I have in my usual palette. You can see the colors I used in this painting sticking up at the bottom of the paper – the rest didn´t fit into the scanner…

20,5 x 20,5 cm, pencil and watercolours on Arches 300 gsm watercolour paper, fine grain. Colours used were W&N lemon yellow, winsor red, cobalt blue, and Rowney burnt sienna.
