Little shed

I have written this in previous posts too but it still holds true: the backs of buildings are often more interesting than the facades. I sketched this in Pointe Claire, in back of the St. Joachim presbytery. When I parked my car the shed was in shadow but after a few minutes a bit of sunlight hit it and the posts of the balcony created an interesting pattern. I painted this with Cobalt Blue, Rose Madder and Cadmium Yellow Light in my watercolour Moleskine.

    Thanks for noting the colours, big help to know what colours you used, keep sketching, I love to see them. I keep trying to do one each day too but it is so hard to find the time so I am totally impressed to see yours each day. Happy painting!
