Coffee Morning in Sarlat

Watercolour with light application of Coloured Pencils

This is a painting that I have just completed. It represents one of the busy coffee spots in Sarlat. I used a bit of golden ochre this time as it is slightly opaque and seem to keep its vibrancy. I have a love hate relationship with watercolours in that the colours always seem to dry too matt and seem to loose their vibrancy when dry. There is always the question of when to put that brush down. I enjoyed this study and I will endeavour to do some more old historical buildings and villages in due time.
