My last watercolour of Paimpol

29 x 18 cm sketchbook

Boat yard - Paimpol, Brittany

This is not true of course, I will be painting many watercolours of Paimpol and Brittany in the Future. It saddens me that it will be a while before I return. I have taken lots of photographs so I will be painting the town and it’s surrounding area during the winter months.
It took me a while to learn that artists mostly sketch and take photos during the summer months, then they work on their studio pieces during the dark winter months.
Painted in my Saunders Waterford fine grain 300g 18 x 29 cm watercolour sketchbook.

  1. I think I´ve seen that before, maybe as an sketch, and I can say it´s good as always, nice tonal contrast and wonderful color palette.

    1. You are very observant setxu! I did do a similar watercolour last year. I will probably paint it next year too as I find it really difficult to capture the atmosphere of the place. I love the fact that the building is painted bright yellow.
