Saint André de Rocquelongue
This is probably the last of my holiday series. We're back a few weeks now and I'm ready to move on to other projects. What I have learned from these last few watercolours is that cobalt blue +aureolin yellow + burnt sienna make beautiful greens. And also that good paper is essential. All of these holiday watercolour sketches have been painted on Arches Travel Book (300g/square meter/140lbs) paper. I must put a few more of these on my Christmas wishlist! If I can find it, that is - all I'm finding on Cheap Joe's is Arches Postcards, which would be smaller. Also to be added to the wishlist: Cheap Joe's Goof-Proof Greeting Cards: a lovely way to personalise your greeting cards, and so easy to make.
