“The world always seems brighter when you’ve just
made something that wasn’t there before.”
I recently completed one of my watercolor paintings
on Canson Moulin du Roy paper and am posting the completed work
along with the steps involved in creating it. It was an early
morning scene, when we were at Colva beach
and it was not crowded. The stretch of sand far across,
and the misty look in the distance motivated me to create this work.

Size 5.5” X 8”
Step 1. Created the sky using a mix of warm and cool colours, and added the distant foliage on the left. Used wet on wet technique as I did not want to have hard edges in the distance.
Step 2. Created the bushes on the left ( Camlin Artists water color tubes ), the sandy seashore and the ocean. At this stage I have not added details anywhere.
Step 3. Added layers of colours to the bushes on the left to create the form and shadow, and flat wash of colour on the sandy seashore. Added details to the figures on the beach.
