Step 1 :
little painting of Dunstanburgh castle I have done the sky wash in
exactly the same way as the others but with cobalt blue.
Step 2 :
itself which is a lovely old ruin on the Northumberland coast, was a
very easy one to paint at this size.
I simply painted it in using the Charles Evans sand colour, mixed with a
tiny touch of ultra marine blue.
Step 3 :
grasses around the castle I dropped in yellow ochre using my no 8 round
brush, then hookers green mixed with yellow ochre. But as the green got
closer to me in the foreground I changed this mix to hookers green and
Step 4 :
And then a few little touches of burnt sienna on its own here and there
just to give that rough effect. Once all this was done I went back to
the castle with my shadow mix which was cobalt blue, alizarin crimson
and burnt sienna.
Step 5 :
For the sea this time I changed to my ¾” flat wash brush and used the
Charles Evans British Sea also now available in 15ml tubes.
Step 6 :
In between the
sea and the land there is the effect of a few rocks. For this I used
the Charles Evans sand colour followed by a little bit of raw umber
followed by a tiny touch of ultra marine blue and burnt sienna mixed all
of this was fairly watery and just let them run together before giving
the effect of rocks by pulled my brush across the wet paint. Again all
using my No 8 round brush. Now what an effective little picture that it.
