Since I have some free time on my hands and also the weather today was surprisingly encouraging, I went to do some outdoor watercolour sketching. I wanted to practice painting trees, which I think are my weak point (when painting in watercolours) so I went to the Korakuen Japanese garden. This time, I first drew pencil lines then used my portable watercolours set. I added some details and lines using pastels back at home.
Medium: Cotman Watercolour paper B5 Medium 270g/m
Lines: 4B and B mitsu-bishi pencil
Colours: My Winsor&Newton, Schmincke 24 colours watercolour set and pastels
Een spannende entree van het DOMunder museum ontworpen door JDdV architecten op het Utrechtse Domplein. Via een smal trappetje kom je beneden meer te weten over de verborgen geschiedenis van 2000 jaar Domplein, Utrecht en Nederland. ’s Avonds wordt het museum afgesloten door het neerklappen van de leuningen.
One hour painting from this afternoon. The street across from my house, it’s not a really pretty street but I needed to do a painting today so I just went for it. I walked up and down the entirety of the street until I found a nice spot.
