Day 8 of the 30 in 30 painting challenge. I am painting, I am painting! It’s just the posting I am lagging behind on.
This is a 5x 7 gouache and pastel on watercolour paper. I made it by doing an underpainting in gouache. When it dried I painted it with fine pumice gel which gave it a sanded surface which helps the pastel stick to it. Then a final colouring with pastel.
The Battery used to be a small fishing village located at the mouth of the narrows opening into St. John’s harbour. Now it’s mainly residential homes with mighty fine views.
