Another view from my window: The tower of St Antony’s (of Padua) church in greens. Coloured pencils and watercolour on top.
You are defying convention successfully here Grandpa which says don’t use too much green in a scene. Your clever use of complementary reds beautifully counteract this leading the eye around the scene. A great one. Be honest – this is Dzana isn’t it?
Enjoy Italy. Wish I was there drawing with you.
Thank you Bob and Marty. You’re right Bob – it’s too green and didn’t make it to the wall or framing. It is done on Canson w/c CP paper 200g. I did watercolour on it before (another sketch) and it was no good for it. I tried coloured pencils Derwent Studio (on this one) then and it was even worse. I tried to rescue it by Schmincke w/c and the result is here. Still not happy though…
Marty – this is Sarajevo in Bosnia and the church is devoted to St Antony of Padua. Last year I visited Padua and his church there (where he’s buried). And Bob, that is where I saw that Donatello’s horseman which I mention a couple of days ago when you had “horseman” post.
