One way streetPosted: December 18, 2018
Although winter weather started quite early in Montreal, after a few warm days and a bit of rain, the snow has all but disappeared. There are some icy patches here and there but for the most part the city is grey. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the dreariness of it when you are hoping for snow to paint.
In my city scene today, I injected a bit of colour into the greyness by using a limited palette of Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson and Ultramarine Blue, with a touch of Burnt Umber in the darkest darks. I think the ochre sky helps to add a warm glow to the watercolour. Painted on Two Rivers Rough Paper, 16″ x 20″.
