Just A House :: Juste une maison

Here is a house on my street. I painted this in the Larolan sketchbook, which I still find sublime. It is amazing just how much water this paper can take, considering that it is not very thick. For this painting I wet the sky with a wet brush (no watercolour). Then I added my colour. This gives a gradient effect, instead of putting in patches of colour.

Voici une maison sur ma rue. J’ai pris un pinceau plein d’eau (sans aquarelle), et j’ai mouillé mon ciel à grandeur. Ensuite j’ai mis ma couleur, et cette technique a donné un effet de dégradé. Ce qui me surprend toujours est la qualité du papier Larolan, qui est assez mince, peut recevoir beaucoup d’eau. Je trouve toujours ce papier sublime.

  1. Jolie composition! Est-ce que tu pourrais redonner les coordonnées pour le papier Larolan? Il semble vraiment très bien absorber l’aquarelle!!


  2. You managed to do a great job painting or rather not painting the snow. This is my favourite so far, and BTW thank you for the tip on the Larolan sketchbook. I got it yesterday and am madly in love today. What a book! But this watercolor is truly beautiful Jane!


    1. Ohhh! I am so glad that you like the Larolan paper… It is surprisingly good even though it is not very thick. And it has many pages so it lasts a long time . Thanks for your comment on the snow ;-)
