Limited Palette Paintings - Three Works in Progress

These are some of the other examples I used for my first "Basic Watercolour" class at KAGS (see posting on 05 November 2013).

The three colours we used in that class were French ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and raw sienna.

Grey Day 1

The second painting was of sky distant shore and water using the blue with a little burnt sienna added to "grey" the colour and gives a lovely blue grey.

Grey Day 2

In the third painting more burnt sienna was added to the blue grey mixture to give a neutral grey and the sky and water were painted in and set aside to dry.

Cloudy Morning 1

In the fourth painting the paper was wet and a pale wash of burnt sienna was put in areas of the sky and snow, then the blue grey was added and finally the neutral grey. With each colour layered over the one before it, this created a whole range of colours on the paper.

I will post these paintings at a later date as they are completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork. I hope you will return often.
