Afternoon out

Afternoon out

Lovely, gentle watercolour Sharon, you have caught the tranquility of the scene very well.

Thanks for looking and your nice comment Stephen. I find painting in a cemetery very tranquilizing, glad I managed to transmit the feeling in paint.

I agree with Stephen: this oozes tranquility - as such places should. Pure watercolour! Love the spring(?) palette. I take it the darker right hand side is a photography issue?

Thanks Kim, appreciate your comments. For some reason my camera would not take the pale palette; ignoring all the pale yellows, it only picked up the blue tones (might not be the camera's fault, I'm not particularly handy with it). Eventually tried it with a flash, resulting in this dark shadow on the right.
