Waiting for the Light
This is another of my recently ‘rediscovered’ watercolours. It was probably painted about ten years ago. I don’t recall which lighthouse it portrays or what my references were but it looks to me like an experiment in working with a very limited palette. This is a technique I have used throughout my painting life as it sharpens up tonal control and guarantees harmony though I notice a little area of yellow in the right hand sky. Whether by accident or design I think it enhances the scene and so the painting works. What do you think?
