Rocks and Pebbles


We’re having a go at Rocks and Pebbles at Newark art Club tomorrow. It’s a great subject for practising tones and textures without the pressure of complicated flower forms to master. And the colours are quite limited and easy to use, but interesting to mix, making different shades of stone colours with siennas, pinks and violets. As with a flower painting, you start with a loose wash, setting the scene and then gradually defining more and more with negative painting and stronger tones to depict the crevices.
