Wet-in-wet watercolour sunset of Putney Embankment in London

Posted On: Sunday 4th December 2011
Summary: This view from Putney Bridge in London is a watercolour that makes much use of the wet-in-wet technique. The painting was started in location as the sun was setting over the Thames, and completed much later in the studio. It's a commission which will be framed and presented to the client in time for Christmas.

watercolour from putney bridgeThis watercolour painting of Putney Embankment  from Putney bridge in London is a recently completed commission. It's 13" x 21" on heavywieght Fabriano NOT paper.

I started this off on location with broad sweeps of wet-in-wet oranges, yellows and purples on damp watercolour paper.

Back in the studio further washes followed, and the painting completed with a combination of indian ink detail with a pen, and highlights in gouache body colour.
