Houses in Waterside

Watercolour sketch of houses in Waterside, New Brunswick

Watercolour sketch of houses in Waterside, New Brunswick, from a photo I took in August.

On 9 ¼ × 6 ¼″ Stillman & Birn Alpha (white/150 gsm) hard-bound sketchbook.

The Stillman & Birn Alpha sketchbook paper is meant for light washes, but it’s just a bit too light for what I’m doing here and tends to buckle. I’m still sorting out how watercolour works, though, and while I should move on to proper blocks (I have loads), I want to get more confident with my handling of watercolour media first.

I did a close-up view of these same houses earlier.
