The Lincoln Inn - watercolour

This is the last painting I had time to paint for the exhibition.

As I wanted to keep my lovely pen drawing intact, I had to find a way to reproduce it on watercolour paper, while not touching the original in my sketchbook. Modern technology helps! The lines are softer than in the drawing, which I really like. And I followed advice from Shari Blaukopf on to give life to the painting, by varying the colours in the red brick wash as I painted the full building. 

This painting will be for sale at the Kilmacud Art Group Exhibition on the 28th and 29th of May, at the St Laurence's Parish Centre, Stillorgan, Dublin.
