Summer Squall

Inbetween the drawings, I am still trying out some new papers.
This painting was made on Saunders Waterford NOT 140lb and I'm pretty impressed how its standing up to wet washes.

I did the background washes and let them dry overnight ( I was busy!)  The next day I added the figures, foliage and statue - and there it was - a Summer Squall !

Hope you enjoy it, as I did painting it!


This painting - and all my others - are permanently on display on my gallery website HERE

  7. Oh, I love this Pat, really can feel the rain mixed with the sunshine. I took a photo with a similar shower from our summer vacation, and wasn't sure I could capture it in watercolor. You did it wonderfully!
