Quick watercolour sketch of the power station today, well it is my day off, I took one photo of it with flash and one without, I don’t know if either of them will look ok, but there you go.
I took a picture of my sketchpad and painting equipment, straight after painting it, for anyone interested.
The whole thing goes in ones pocket easily the colours used were rose madder, Prussian blue, burnt umber, lemon yellow, yellow ochre, and Paynes grey. I didn’t use the, cobalt blue, titanium white or ivory black that are also in my paint box.
The point I am trying to make here is the power station is likely to be demolished soon and I suppose I have seen it a lot over the last 45 years but it is the attempt to paint it that will make the strongest memory of what it looked like for me.
