I've often observed dark threatening clouds hang omniously over the River Tyne with sunlight bursting through, creating patches of light reflected on the water.
Watercolour is the ideal medium to capture these fleeting moments of nature.
This simple but effective watercolour has been painted on hand made paper from Fabriano in Italy. I've been to the Fabriano paper Mill in the Marches region of Italy on two occasions to purchase their beautiful paper and leather bound sketchbooks.
The rough texture of the paper is ideal for creating the dark moody clouds to contrast the bright light sparkling on the River Tyne.
