Started Durham from Frankland Lane on 200lb Saunders Waterford rough paper. Cobalt blue and naples yellow (Daler Rowney) for the sky with raw sienna and some brown madder for the foreground. Viridian green and raw sienna for the greens. Brown madder and ultramarine for the darks. Counter change on the electric poles painted negatively through the trees- no masking fluid used.
Finished on Tuesday at the Chester-le-St Arts Society - darken foreground and grasses and added detail to cathedral.
Needs something in the bottom corner and re-shape the middle distance which is too regular.
