“When a watercolour emerges from the wash, it does so imbued with possibilities.”
This exercise is entitled Sunset over the Valley and combines the various washes from the last two days, namely flat, graduated and variegated. Adding the graduated sunset wash in the top right hand corner was a quiet revelation. It involved turning the board, wetting the sky up to the edge of the mountains and then dropping in the red which then charged the wetted area – oh what joy! Light red was recommended for this but not having any I combined brilliant red with burnt sienna with a satisfying result I feel.

I would like to dedicate today’s post to the memory of those who lost their lives so cruelly in Baghdad and Bangladesh.
