Colour study - Dark Clouds..
As I wrote before, one of my good intentions for this year is to get to know my palette a bit better. This is a study I made in order to get more acquainted with one of the colours that I rarely use: Antwerp Blue.
I used the scene from Bentheim Castle to make a watercolour with a very limited palette, only Antwerp Blue and Burnt Umber. I already knew that by mixing those two colours I could get shades of green, perfect for the trees.
Of course those dark clouds are not so dark anymore but I did learn a few things about Antwerp Blue.
