Aubeterre – the Square


Watercolour and gouache 5"x8" Moleskine

Watercolour and gouache 5"x8" Moleskine

Most of this subject was in shade, but with the trees rimmed with strong sunlight, so I my first wash in the tree area was light yellow/green, superimposed when dry with a much darker green over most of the same area. I find that painting a scene like this imprints on my memory much more of what was going on around me than would otherwise be the case. I can still smell the warm air and hear the sound of people eating and enjoying lunch.
