Painting Kuching in Watercolour

The Process Part One

Posted on: 21/06/2017

First a pencil drawing 


Then the yellow layers go on. I use a big brush to lay on broad washes of yellow. I may spent a few days painting only yellow shades from light to deep. The flowers are a bright pink so are left unpainted.  No yellow there.


Then I add the red layers. The red may be cool or warm depending on how dark the shadow areas will be.


Then I add the blues. Which makes the yellows and red turn green and brown!

From here on I will be spending days adding layers of blue. Again the shades would be either cool or warm and I will be using Phthalo Blue, Peacock Blue, Cobalt Blue and Ultramarine Deep. Also the brushes I am using get progressively finer as I refine the details.
