This is another exercise from the book Atmospheric Watercolours by Jean Haines….
This is The Venetian Door. There is every colour in the rainbow in this! Normally I wouldn’t use so may colours but just for the exercise in the book I have stuck to similar, not identical, colours to what Jean used. I’ve certainly put my own stamp on this – mine looks quite a bit different to the version in the book….
The purpose of this exercise is to simply practice a variety of techniques Jean teaches in her book. I enjoyed painting this. It’s good practice at painting loosely. This watercolour measures 8″ x 11″ and was painted on 140 lb Fabriano Artistico watercolour paper.
Slowly but surely I think my watercolour skills are improving….
