This is very effective Lin, and you have certainly achieved the feeling of being there. The colour palette also gives the impression of being inside in more subdued lighting too.

Yes that's in there and well done too. I know what you mean about that paper, I tried it once and verdict was horrific for my style and technique.

I agree this is brimming with atmosphere Lin thanks to your colour choices, a lovely piece

I really like this one Lin! Good colours and very atmospheric.

Decided to break from my latest CP work and get out the watercolours. This was an experiment and very different for me but it does us good to have a change from time to time. I've even tried a loose & lively style and a limited palette. They say change is good as a rest. I quite enjoyed it. I also changed format as ref was originally portrait. I wanted to give the feeling of being inside there, looking on from another table. Hahnemule is quite a 'fluffy' paper and doesn't work well with masking fluid. Also you can load on lots of water and it sits on top and dries slowly. Something else unusual for me is to use such wet washes and dilute colour.
