A peek at my process

Posted on October 30, 2020 at 2:10 PM

Chapel In The Woods at Dusk is a tiny watercolor done for the Tiny Picture Show to be held Nov 29th at the K of C Hall in Newcastle Miramichi
I began by talking a photo of the little Chapel at Wilson's Point around dusk during the evening of the yearly Haunted Graveyard Walk.
The first step in my process was doing a value sketch..I used blue and black ink..the blue ink was non-waterproof and easily moved with a brush and bit of water. The black ink was used on top when dry to darken some areas.
In step two I carefully choose the colors - A limited pallet of Cad yellow deep, Cad red light, and Luna Blue.
For step three I carefully and lightly did the drawing with graphite on Arches 100% cotton 140lb paper
Step Four Paint!
