Rigaud Ground Moraine

I tried a new way of painting in my Stillman & Birn watercolour sketchbook. I applied a water wash on the sky and on the moraine and when I applied the paint after it had tried it was a blissful feeling. I think that this is what this paper likes. Had alot of trouble mixing the greys today… but I always have trouble with mixing the greys. I used French Ultramine with Burnt Sienna and Cerulean Blue with Cadmium Red Light and a tad of Yellow.

Voici la moraine sur la route 201 à Rigaud. La vraie peinture est tellement plus belle que ma version numérisée… hum… je vais devoir acheter un autre numériseur, mais j’hésite. Cet après-midi j’ai essayé une nouvelle technique pour peindre. J’ai mouillé la partie du ciel et de la moraine avec un pinceau et de l’eau. Pendant que j’essayais de trouver le bon ton de gris en mélangeant les couleurs, le papier a eu le temps de sécher, et la sensation de la peinture sur le paper était divine. Je crois que le papier Stillman & Birn aime cette technique.
