Construction of Rosthwaite Cumbria

First sketch from holiday in Rosthwaite in Clares Cottage

Re-drawn moving my eyeline up to the gutter line and moving the yew tree behind the chimney.

Random blocks of  acrylic colour ( Crimson, lemon yellow and ultramarine blue)  on watercolour 200 lb Bockingford paper using a 2 inch foam roller with lighter colours at the top. No photo available for this stage but this one was done at the same time.

Sketch added then white for the buildings and road then glazes of transparent acrylic to define the building shapes and foliage using a brush. 

Second glaze added to give more depth and more dry brush in the foreground.
Finished painting 15 x 11 inches.

Fabulous work! I like the perspective and the way you start the painting is very interesting.
