Coal HarbourPosted: July 5, 2014
I didn’t quite get to finish the details of this demonstration but I thought I’d post it anyway. Today we worked with a limited palette of primary colours – in my case: alizarin, ultramarine and azo yellow. It’s amazing how much variety you can obtain with three hues. The scene I picked was fairly complex — the Vancouver Rowing Club is a busy place on a Saturday morning — so I probably could have worked on the ink drawing some more but the rain clouds were coming (always a concern at a plein aire workshop!) and we didn’t want to get soaked. Despite that I think I managed to express the essence of the Tudor style building set against the dark trees and mountains.
