|Horizon shine watercolour on paper 18x18cm ©2016Lisa Le Quelenec|
This very wet and wild winter has been inspiration for some more stormy watercolours. I used Arches rough paper for this one a complete change to the hot press I usually use. I liked the way I could scrub the pigment into the pits of the paper staining it and then blot off the peaks of the texture. I was trying to capture all the beautiful colours in this particular storm and the way they all sparkled. The sky at the horizon was a very warm and dirty yellow which was exquisitely set off by the turquoise sliver of sea.
