Thought I'd post something different.
The first image is the pencil drawing. Second image is first wash of watercolour. I will then put another wash on painting and finish with darks and shadows.
This is the Green Dragon Pub at Wymondham (pronounced Windham)

Watercolour on Whatman paper. I am using the back of an old stock of Whatman. Its a crime its no longer made!!!

Plein air Wed group met today at the Forum, Norwich.
We sat at the back of the War Memorial in front of the city hall.
Usual pen and wash sketch of either upper or lower Goat Lane!
The sun is very low, casting huge long shadows.
It was so low it went behind St Peter Mancroft Church tower for about 20 minutes as it moved across the sky, at the temperature dropped suddenly.
Happy Christmas to all.
