Walk Three Hundred and Twenty-Two – Woodcock Hill view

I love this ribbon of road with its steep banks leading down Woodcock Hill to the village. I think if I ever took the time to paint a large ‘proper’ painting of one of the views of the village, this might be the spot I would choose.

185mm x 120mm pen and watercolour in large Moleskine

This looks so peaceful and typically English, at least on my child hood reading of only English books, not much done by Australians for children then, now there are so many.
I hope one day you have time to do this as a full blown painting.

Yes, very English. I expect to see some enthusiastic cyclists coming round the bend any minute. Do you generally do the ink first or last or both in these landscapes?

Penny you reminded me that I had equally irrelevant books when I was a child. Some well-meaning do-gooders supplied the schools I went to in Fiji with reading books written for African children. So we were all well versed in what to do if there were lions around and how we needed to take quiinine for malaria!
Alison, ink first. I've only just been able to get noodlers ink which is permanent and can be put in a fountain pen. I prefer the feel of a wet ink pen line to the dryer scrapey feeling of the pitt pens I've used before.

I love the colours in this one Julie - says to me you've thought often about how you might do this on as a big 'proper' painting.
