Norfolk Sky-line. Leafy Lane

By Jamie Cooper, May 5 2019 12:37PM

Now that the leaves are budding on the trees I decided to do a sketch of a lane close to where I live. We haven't had much rain though and I suppose this accounts for the browns I can see in the foilage and the leaves are not out in force like in most other years, so far this Spring.


This is Winsor & Newton Peat Brown ink + some black ink applied with a dip-pen, and sign writer's brush, on a watercolour background.


The watercolour sky was added and whilst still wet I went into it with some Raw Sienna, followed by other yellows and some greens to represent the foliage and fields. This all took about 10 minutes. After leaving to dry (About 20 minutes), I sketched over with the ink, which pulled the whole scene together.
