Painting in Watercolour

Newcastle is a very busy city. When Painting Grey Street, Newcastle I find it great fun to bring life to the scene. I do this by adding in people for extra movement and interest, like this one of Grey Street Summer Rain. It’s even more fun painting Grey Street in winter. You have the extra challenge of resolving the reflections of the sky, buildings and figures in the wet pavement. Watercolour is the ideal medium for this. However you need to know the sequence of washes and how to build up the colour.

You will notice that the gentle yellow colour that you can see just above the distant buildings is actually running throughout the entire painting (apart from the snow lying on the rooftops) and is particularly evident in the pavement in the centre of the foreground. When the wash of yellow dried, I wet the sheet of paper and introduced a very subtle hint of Rose Madder in the sky and foreground before introducing the slate grey for the sky and reflections.
