Another Corbières morning
I've been told I'm churning them out. I take it as a compliment. Because if I don't paint, I don't learn. And what's the point in staying static?
This is another view of the hills near Saint André de Roquelongue in the Corbières. Again, I used a limited palette, ultramarine, ruby red and vanadium yellow. But I achieved a very different mood from the previous painting. Painted on Saunders Waterford Rough watercolour paper, with a Jean Haines mop from Rosemary & Co. It's a big brush! And I love it!
PS: No Joycean quote here! But don't worry, I'll be sketching in Dublin again as we get closer to Bloomsday!
