Rona2: VSW Minerve France, 1


It usually starts with a sketch.


Then shadows.

I wanted to capture the dark that the leafy canopy created.
I used DeAtramentis Document Urban Grey ink for the grisaille work
so it would not move when I added watercolor.

I swear it has a gritty feel to it as well, and this was on hotpress paper!


Watercolors added.

Lots of Primateks for the gritty textures.
My only regret is drawing the few stones on the walkway.

Loving the virtual sketch-walk of Minerve; this image from Evalyn Baker
The “alleyway” seemed both cheery and moody at the same time.
