Walk Eighty – Wheatfields



This was done at seven o’clock on a warm evening, using my second bargain from the art shop – the teeniest little Winsor and Newton field set of watercolours. None of the blues or yellows would have been possible with the Graphitint pencils

I think that the freshness of your watercolour is what makes it stand out, but I also like the depth of line work with the graphitint pencils. I havent used them as they sounded a bit sludgy coloured.
Thanks for your comment on my rock, I felt my sketching had been going down but that one lifted me.

That's maybe the same water-colour set thatI have - about 2 1/2 x 5 inches, 12 half pans. I love it and would get another just to keep in my going out bag but they don't seem to be available anymore. Lovely panoramic view - I'll try some more of these when it gets warmer - I'm really feeling the cold this year - maybe because I'm getting thinner?

Penny - I really wouldn't recommend the graphitints. Alison I already had one of those – my main watercolour set - which I've had for about 25 years. However this is the same black enamel tin but only about 2 inches by 3 inches. It holds 8 half pans but if you take the brush out you can squeeze in another 4. It's so tiny you can have it in you bag at all times
