    Watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/4 imperial. Steven Cronin set a challenge on his Patreon site with this photo. Taken by Steven, it’s a night time scene at St Ives Cornwall. Very limited palette of neutral tint, light red and rose madder, with white gouache to bring out the highlights. I’ve videoed this and will be uploading it to my youtube channel when it’s edited.

    Pete.

    Nice one Pete particularly as you were probably out your comfort zone. I suspect its not easy to portray night time in watercolour but you have caught the feeling of an evening walk along that quayside. Although I dont paint too well I do take photos with a view to one day painting one so I’ll maybe take some night scenes for future reference.

    Loved the video, thanks for your time in making them its a great help to see how paintings come together.

    Jim

    Nice work, Pete. The light/dark contrast and shadows are really well done. As Jim said, not an easy scene to paint in watercolor.
