Watercolour Wall Scene

Tuesday, 4 May 2021


It is time for Watercolour Wednesday at Splitcoaststampers. I am hosting this weeks challenge which is painting walls in watercolour. These are not normal walls, they are old stone walls found in earlier times. I remember when visiting family in England coming across some of these walls. 

Our video this week comes from Artist Paul Clark. I was very taken with the way he does his videos, I think he makes it easy for the viewer to understand the process. Below is the YouTube video for this challenge.




I drew the wall in pencil, then proceeded to watercolour using the colours shown below. I left the sky relatively light and added loose plantings and grass. I then added the tree, but I am not sure if I like it.
Oh well, too late now!


I painted in the overhang of leaves, and in looking at it I think I will make the branches darker, which is easy enough to do.

The painting is 6 x 7 on Arches Cold Press watercolour paper and painted with Daniel Smith watercolours.


I am sort of happy with it, I think I might do it over again as I would like the plants to be a bit looser, and maybe change the way I have done the tree.
