Farmhouse Duet



I had just under an hour to kill before collecting Harry from school last week and decided to take a drive through Benwick into Ramsey looking for some good painting locations. Just before the golf course I decided to turn around and pulled into a farm entrance to do so. As I turned I saw this little property dwarfed by the landscape surrounding it and stopped the car.
I spent the remainder of my time here at Waypost Farm sketching the image before me twice, using watercolour to enhance the first effort and gouache for the second.

I was window-shopping online at LAMY's website after looking at your website, and now I know what to get for my fiancee's birthday ;) Shhhh... don't tell her! And thanks to you too!
This is a very nice one again! Good job!

This is lovely. I like the look of the two as well. same view different mediums. it looks as if the sun has just come out from behind a cloud in the second one and brightened up the scene.

I like these both - but the gouache colors are really gorgeous.

As much as I love watercolors, I have to admit that the gouache colors are more vibrant. Lovely job on these!

on this set, I prefer the watercolor for the smoother flow of design--but both have their own charms.

Two lovely pieces of work here pal. Strangely, its the brighter gouache colours I prefer as I think there is more contrast.

I don't want to choose one - I like both, I like the contrasts, I like the feeling of lightness in them.

Both are lovely, the gouache a bit brighter, but each lovely. You are inspiring, carrying your artwork around, stopping and just painting/sketching wherever the road takes you!
