Leicester Painting

This project we simple as I was tasked to go out and study Leicester once again.

I decided to take a different approach to my normal one, and instead I got out my watercolors and acrylics. Its unbelievable how rusty I felt when I started off, so this is my first study, which is very wonky buy I was more concentrated on gaining a grasp of the paints than anything.

 I used white acrylic to add the water details on top of the sculptures and fountain. It sort of worked though I should imagine had I only used watercolors I would not have got away with that trick!

 This was my last watercolor study, and this time I used only watercolors. I wanted to try and paint in a process that meant every brush stroke was permanent and I had to mean it.

This brief dabble into traditional paints was the first time id done it in years and it felt good. I'm definitely going to be doing more of this, and try to improve my accuracy with a brush, use of colour and line work.
