Adventures with drawing and painting

Main St in blue

Watercolor painting of Main St Chryston in blue and yellow.

My idea with this was to play around with really dark foregrounds and light backgrounds. I thought I would use sepia for the foreground but ended up picking navy blue at the last minute. Although the streets were dry at the time I took the picture that inspired this painting, the blue gives the streets a wet feeling.

I limited myself to three colors on this (navy blue, yellow, and mango) and used Derwent Inktense watercolors.
