Sketch-It

Plein-air pen and wash on paper

New Castle Avenue in Colour

4 Comments


Today I made several tries at painting using yesterday’s pen sketch as a starting point since the weather is keeping me inside.

If a painting is not to my liking, I turn the paper over and use the other side; happens a lot. If both sides don’t work, the paper gets chucked. Sometimes Gerda wants to keep it to cut out small sections. Anyways this is another one that is painted on the back of another picture.

Newcastle Avenue Looking South.

Not perfectly happy with it, but had fun painting while listening to the opera on CBC radio, in a dry and warm place.
