Afternoon light on the Hamble by 

Watercolour done on Saunders Waterford “High White” rough with M Graham watercolours 22" X 12". This was painted during a trip to Friends over Christmas as a chill out Painting. I wanted to capture the Afternoon light & depth in this painting.

    Another winner Bill. I love the way you have used a fairly limited pallette (my favourite way of painting) and yet still created great depth. The eye naturally follows the light which leads not just into the panting but beyond – watercolour masterclass.

  • Many thanks my Friend,yes using a limited palette makes you work as an Artist to achieve not only depth but tonal values also. I have Always been a painter of light & it certainly is a long & fulfilling journey as with each step you become more enlightened & also more controlled of your use of vrious consistencies of paint from nearly buttery paint to really watery weak tea mixes and also never being afraid of the white paper.

    Warm regards Bill

    Hi Bill! I do love that glow of light! You have captured the depth wonderfully too with the foreground pebbles. Lovely!

  • Many thanks Sally ! I am pleased with this as we had a hard time before christmas and going away to paint for a few days seemed to work !
